Well we’ve sure had a wet September and more yet to come! Nonetheless….we’ve got crops in abundance. It’s just that “harvest” time of year when I realized every night’s dinner planning is an exercise in not what to have, but what NOT to have….
Lettuce, onions, garlic, squash, carrots, beets potatoes, peppers, tomatoes, cabbages, cauliflower, kohlrabi, celeriac, parsely, cilatro, celery, chard, kale, mesclun, spinach, radishes, arugula, raab…And I’m sure I’m forgetting something! (Oh yeah…we have seed garlic at both markets today! We have very limited quantity on seed garlic this year….saving a lot of what we have to increase our crop for future years….so it’s first-come first-serve on what we got!).
So head out to the Bayview or Coupeville farmer’s market today for an impressive look at the abundance of our mystical isle of Whidbey. Even in the rain!
And while you are there – Chef Sieb Jurrians from Prima Bistro (and our own Corey Faucon farmer intern/chef) will be conducting a chef demo at the Bayview market today! Sieb tells me he has going to demonstrate how to cook a celeriac (aka celery root or “brains” as my daughter Wynter calls this particularly interesting looking veggie) and wild foraged mushrooms! Since wet nd cool is the season for both, this sounds awesome! (and yummy!).
Hope you can make it out to see us!
