Tomatoes continue in their abundance, with the dry weather increasing the flavor factor, wow. Lots and lots of heirloom tomatoes, lots of slicers, lots of cherry tomatoes. The highlight for Luca is the Hugel beds’ cucumber performance.
Saturday morning we will have the first harvest from the new cucumber patch. Sweet salad mix (take note: lettuces are stressed from the high winds and heat, so you may notice that the lettuce mix is a little bit stronger flavored than usual). Bunched arugula, French breakfast radishes, a few broccoli heads, lots of broccoli greens, lots of baby ginger, small amounts of sweet potato, Thai pumpkin chunks, baby turmeric, dandelion greens, escarole, Italian basil, cilantro, dill, parsley, onions, scallions, carrots, a few bunches of beets, all of our lovely seasoning peppers, all of our hot peppers, storm-planted papaya and a few zinnia flowers!
Luca just finished the poster image for the 19th annual Taste of St. Croix event, which (according to the press release we just saw) will be held in downtown Christiansted on Thursday, April 11, 2019. Contact the St. Croix Foundation to find out when tickets will become available! Registration for booths will start on Monday February 25th.
