They’ve been witness to a lot as well: beautifully abundant blueberry seasons, a widening nursery selection (a la our shiny new green house!) that seems to vibrate with enthusiasm to match all those home gardeners out there, organic papayas swaddled in purple tissue paper, record sales in Hermiston cantaloupes and countless other moments that truly define the tremendous plenitude that we experience as eaters in Chimacum and Jefferson County.
I’m signing off from my post as your produce porch updater, with much thanks and appreciation for all our customers. Their love, support and curiosity in eating and growing good food and supporting those that make all this eating and growing possible is what made working at the Chimacum Corner Farmstand so meaningful, and fun!
So as the routine goes…What’s new and exciting: Local Radish Bunches from Red Dog Farm $2.49/each, the first Snow Peas of the season from Roger Risley of Port Townsend $6.79/lb and Hakurei Turnip Bunches $2.99/each from Finnriver Farm.
If you’ve never enjoyed the glory of a fresh eating turnip, the time should be now! They’re great sliced thin on a salad or sauteed with their greens in a little sesame oil and tamari.
Happy Eating, Always!
