Asparagus, Jerusalem Artichokes and Rhubarb are available at the Co-Op also if you can't make it down to the Olympia Farmers Market. If you don't see it there just ask, let them know you what you want, they are great at working with local farms for produce. This is true at the farmers market also, if there is something you would like to have let the farmers know. Often times they can grow it, or are already growing it, but if there is not a high demand for an item at the market then they don't pack it down there. Like what you ask? Chives, Lemon Balm, Nettles, Purslane, 'alternative' color veggies like purple carrots and tomatoes, ground cherries to name a few examples. Did you know that we grow 4 different colors of cauliflower?
There is always much going on at the farm, even things that don't go to market. Beautification projects (flowers and flowers and flowers), Native bee research project (more info soon), new chicken coops complete with laying hens (if you are interested in eggs let us know) and meat birds. Just a few of the behind the scenes activities!
Thought of the week: "Remember, all the flowers of tomorrow are the seeds we sow today."
