Fabulous Fall Veggies
We have some lovely storage vegetables for sale. The key to storing veggies for the winter is having a space that is both on the cooler side and also relatively dry. A closet or pantry can work well for those that do not have a root cellar. A basement can be a great storage space for vegetables as long as it does not get damp.
We have Red, and Yellow Storage Onions. Both of these varieties can last through the winter and into the spring. White Sweet Onions store through November, but are mild and sweeter that the reds and yellows. All onions $1.25/lb
Shallots, the gourmet of alliums, store almost forever, or until next July, whichever comes first. Garlic lasts well over the winter and into spring. Both are $4/lb
Winter Squash, anyone? We have Pie Pumpkins, Sunshine Kabocha, Green Kabocha, Gray Kabocha, Carnival, Delicata, and Spaghetti. Lots of size variation so let us know if you want S, M, or L. $1.25/lb
Lovely Sprouts perfect for a quick vegetable side dish, roast them in the oven, add balsamic vinegar, tiny bit o’ honey and voila! $4 per stalk.
Add crunch to your winter. Store cabbage in a fridge. We have some medium sized heads and some small heads. $1.50/lb
Worm Castings and Compost
Worm Pooze is worm castings, minerals and humates all in a cute little package with instructions on the back. Use on indoor plants for a nutrient boost! $5 per bag
Compost can be added to your vegetable and flower gardens in the fall. It helps to retain moisture, blankets the soil for overwinter protection (giving an extra layer between the cold, soil microbes, and roots), and provides readily available nutrients for the spring. $50 per Bobcat bucket
Unscreened Worm Castings are great for outdoor gardens and flower beds to condition the soil, balance nutrients and it is relatively odorless. $1/ lb
