I just thought I would mention that you can use Collards to make Collard Rolls. It is just like Cabbage Rolls but instead of using cabbage you use collards. In one way, it is actually better because the collards are not tough like the cabbage can sometimes be, when you make Cabbage Rolls. It is very good!

First market of the year!!!
I will be posting updates as we get closer to market day, so be sure to check back.Our main thing that we will have available for sale for this week is our bagged salad mixes. Everyday when I walk through the gardens I notice that it seems as if the lettuce and greens are getting more and more beautiful by the day. I think one of the most beautiful things are the collards. They are getting so big and beautiful. I am dieing to pick them and make some collard rolls with them. I am hoping that I have some collards left after the market on Saturday to make some collard rolls with.
- Red Scallions
- White Scallions
- Bagged Salad Mixes: Just Lettuce Mix, Mild Spicy Mix, Super Spicy Mix, and A Little Bit of Everything Mix
- Red Russian Kale
- Bagged Spinach (possible, depending on how much we have to pick)
- Bagged Arugula (also a possible, depending on how much we have come Saturday)
- Garlic Scapes
- Broccoli Raab
I am not sure exactly what I will be bringing, but I do know that I have lots and lots of plants. Listed are some of the possibilities.
- Large potted Dahlias (depends on which ones may be blooming by Saturday)
- Geraniums (also depends on which ones may be blooming by Saturday)
- Hanging baskets (with Sweat Peas and Carnations in them)
- Tomato plants (many different kinds)
- and others
I am not positive yet but I am thinking about making pizzelles (maybe mulberry, vanilla, and or almond). I am also thinking about some kind of bread (maybe mulberry).
We should have radishes available for next week also, if not this week. We have 4 different types of radishes growing right now. The beets are also getting closer to being ready. The head lettuce is growing bigger and bigger every day.
I have not posted any pictures in awhile, (been pretty busy) so hopefully I will get a chance soon to get out there and take some pictures, especially of what we will have available to sell.

I figured what would be better to make as the topic of the month than Greens and Lettuce Mixes, since most of what we will have available for the month of June is going to be just that.
I just picked my first few bowls of greens and lettuce the other day, and had my first salad of the year. I must say everything was very delecious!
Here is what mixes I plan to have available for the first market at Valley City (which I must add, is coming very, very soon):
Just Lettuce Salad Mix
Mild Spicy Mix
~This mix includes about half lettuce and about half mild spicy greens. Such as Red Oakleaf Lettuce, Salad Bowl Lettuce, Mizuna, Mustard Spinach, and others.
Super Spicy Mix
~This mix contains mostly spicy greens and a little bit of lettuce. Such greens include Arugula, Mizuna, Mustard Osaka, Chicory Red Treviso, Salad bowl lettuce and some others.
A Little Bit of Everything Mix
~The name of this mix says it all, includes a little bit of everything. Such as all the different types of lettuces we grow, spinach, and some spicy greens such as Mizuna, Endive, some Arugula and others.
Plus I also plan to have availabe:
Red Russian Kale
~I also plan to sell a stir fry mix with greens such as Kale, Collards and Swiss Chard. You can also add this mix to your favorite salad mix.
I may also have some other Mixes available. I will know for sure when it is closer to the first maket. I will be posting (when it is closer to the first market) what we will have available at Valley City on June 13th.
