P-p-p-p-potatoes!!!!


New Potatoes are here!


These are warba nuggets and table potatoes.
Nuggets

 Table potatoes. These are a little larger than the nuggets.


It sure was nice to walk into the cooler this morning and see that stack of new potatoes sitting there. Its about time we saw some local produce. Freshly dug potatoes will be arriving 3 times a week throughout the summer.

An Update:
Peas and Carrots should be available on June 20th, give or take a few days.
Strawberries should be ready in about two weeks.

Words that start with "S"

Sunshine
Spring, or is it almost summer?
and...... Strawberries!

I mean it folks, they have finally arrived. Stop by the store and pick up your locally grown greenhouse strawberries. Field berries will be ready in about 2 weeks.

On another note, we are expecting local nugget potatoes on June 9th. Count down the days, they'll soon be here.

If you were wondering how this season compares to last year I'll give you some details.
Last year we had peas on May Long weekend, this year we still have to wait at least another week.
Last year we had local potatoes on May 22, this year, June 9th.
So overall, all local produce is around 3 weeks behind.
