Scapes Alive! They Are Here!

Posted 5/8/2012 9:47am by Cheryl Ferguson.




SCAPES!!!  Yep, those tender garlic tips are here for their annual flash dance.  Sauteed, they’re like a mild garlic asparagus.  Diced raw, they add a nice bite to salsas and salads and slaws.  Or stir fry to mellow them into your spring veggie medley.  But they’re only here for about 3 weeks, so come on down!  We’ll have scapes this week at the markets we are doing this week:  Cobblestone Farmers Market (Tue.), Old Salem Farmers Market (Opening Day is Saturday, May 12th), and also at PYO Strawberries at our farm this Saturday, May 12th.  (9 a.m.--NOTE new later time!-- to noon.  Last picking starts at 11:30 a.m.)

 It's time to e-Scape!!

Here's to Happy, Healthy, Organic & Local Eating,
Cheryl & Ray
