|Spring Mix hand cut &triple rinsed|
Some things early, some things late. We just seeded our tatsoi and turnips are still about 30 days away. Peas and radishes are very late as well but the healthy sweet potato vines look promising and we have every hope of having lots of sweet potatoes in time for thanksgiving feasts.
Hibiscus flowers are tapering off quickly. Last chance to get them may be next week. Still a chance to try them in a southern style "cranberry sauce"( check out our recipe) The beautiful plants yielded generously! Next year we really ought to plan a hibiscus festival to share and expand our knowledge on the many ways to use them.
The wild beauty berries are drying up on the bushes. The birds will pick at them all winter. We were able to get a nice share already and we can enjoy the syrup we made for many months. You can too! We will have plenty of jars at the farmers market on Friday evenings.
