|Where we’ll be:
Pawtuxet Village Farmers Market
Thundermist West Warwick Farmers Market
Rain! We’ve got rain! What a relief it is to have some rain (finally) falling. Our irrigation pond was so low the past couple of weeks that we were unable to use it. Not a good situation when temperatures are soaring. Both farmers and their crops are happy now.
We have a new item to bring to the market this week. Daikon radish! It is a white root vegetable that has a spicy flavor and can be eaten raw, pickled or cooked. Here are a few ideas:
In addition, we will also be bringing the following items to market:
Carrots (with tops)
Chioggia Beets (with tops)
Skyphos Butterhead Lettuce
Hot Peppers (Ghost, Habanero, Serrano, Jalapeno)
Tomatoes (cherry, plum and slicers)
Some photos from the farm:
