Come and visit us this weekend:
Pawtuxet Village Farmer’s Market
Rhodes on the Pawtuxet
60 Rhodes Place, Cranston
We will be bringing the following items to the market this week:
French Breakfast Radishes
Baby Biera Kale (see write up below)
Today’s rain made for a good day to do work in the hoop houses. The newest of our hoop houses, nicknamed the ‘Big House’ (as it is our biggest) was worked in as well as “Blue Skys” (first built), and “Jerry” (second built and was the first build by our wonderful volunteer Jerry). It is really nice to have cooler days to work in the hoop houses, as on sunny days they are *very* toasty and not as comfortable.
One of the occupants of the “Big House’ is Beira Kale. It is the first time that we have grown this variety and we are looking forward to introducing it to you at the market this week.
As described by Johnny’s Seeds, Beira is the traditional leaf kale (Gallena) for Portuguese kale soup.
See you at the market!
