Temescal Farmers’ Market
Sunday, September 23rd
This is the first week for peas: some bush, some pole, snap, snow and shelling. The beginnings of ornamental sweet peas start next week. We have lots of beautiful lettuce varieties, kales, collards, bok choi, mustard, swiss chards, radicchio, and endive. Herbs include cilantro, Persian mint, and sage. In gallons we have a few Aji lucento perennial peppers, Pineapple Crush alpine strawberries and other ornamentals.
Hope to see you Sunday…
