Boone Street Produce Available for Sale TONIGHT
We have fresh picked Boone Street produce available for sale tonight!
Kale, collards, cherry tomatoes, banana peppers, okra, cucumbers, potatoes, and squash will be for sale TONIGHT in Remington.
We will be set up with a tent covering in the parking lot next to the Remington garden at 28th and Fox Street. The market will go from 5:30-8:00 PM.
We did have a small sale on Sunday in the Midway neighborhood next to the garden and at the Greenmount and 25th Street intersection, but the rain put a bit of a damper on things and we still have a lot of produce for sale.
Growing all of this food has taught me a lot about the work it takes to bring produce to market. Each leaf of greens has to be washed, sorted, and weighed. We harvested 3.5 pounds of greens on Saturday, and there is plenty more growing.
The greens will be great in a summery saute with tomatoes, over rice, mixed with pasta, or in an easy eggy frittata. Can't go wrong with greens!
Sorting and weighing the tomatoes:
One of the neighborhood kids borrowed my camera, here's a shot he took of us harvesting on Saturday!
All produce is pesticide-free, and the proceeds will be used to help support the garden's growth.
We may even bring our homemade pasta:
Thanks for the new pasta machine, Greenmount Goodwill!
Here's the beet flavor made with Boone Street beets (we have a carrot version also):
Thank you all for the support, and I'll see you at the market tonight!
