Danvers Carrots: The original Danvers Half Long dates back to the 1870s. This strain “126” was improved in the 1940s. The old standard American carrot, adaptable and dependable.   

I love to slice them down the middle and with a medium hot pan fry them in a little butter or bacon fat until they almost burn or blacken.  The combination of crunchy outside and sugary inside is wonderful.    

Cascadia Snap Peas

Neon Lights Swiss Chard

Tart Green Baking Apples:  No spray, No prune!  Just apples from a beautiful old tree on the farm.  I used to treat these like my natural sour patch kids when I was young.  Excellent for pies, crumbles, tarts, apple sauce or snacking if you love the tart!

Collard Greens

Bull's Blood Beets

Siberian Kale


Baba Lu, working the morning shift: Half dozen eggs


And yes Kevin, I am putting in the the pine apples, kiwis and avocados.  They should be ready for next week.

Aaron, we marked your cooler at Duratus, it has your extra eggs in it!

Thank you all for the kind words and encouragement!
