Farmstand Product List Mar 6-12, 2013

Fresh n New!

For local food lovers like you and me, March 20 (the first day of spring) can’t come fast enough. And for home gardeners—whether working a backyard, patio containers, community garden plot, or window box—the countdown to the vernal equinox is our time to get in gear for the new season.

And just like The Philadelphia Flower Show, the Fair Food Farmstand has what you need to get your garden growing again: While you’re shopping for crisp, hydroponically grown YOUNG ROMAINE LETTUCE from White Star Growers, and RUSSIAN BANANA FINGERLING POTATOES (on sale this week!) from Tuscarora Organic Growers, pick up sustainably grown SEEDS from Happy Cat Farm!

This year, in addition to Happy Cat’s rack of vegetable seeds (or, as I like to call them, “pre-veggies”) and herbs, we’ve got a second display with labels popping with reds, yellows, greens, and purples: It’s our all-heirloom tomato selection! Look for famous varieties like AMISH PASTE, a hefty determinate perfect for saucing; YELLOW PEAR (the cutest tom, if you ask me), sweet and juicy when ripe and crunchy and olive-like when picked green and pickled; and GREEN ZEBRA, a stripy little beauty with lots of flavor and tender flesh.  Or try out a new variety this year – the cream-colored, voluptuous WHITE QUEEN, or the trapezoid-shaped, smoky-flavored JAPANESE BLACK TRIFELE (which is really from Russia).

One of the best reasons to plant heirloom seeds—in addition to flavor—is to save them from year to year: Plant a seed, grow a tomato, harvest one of those fruits and remove the seeds. Let them dry and store carefully to plant next spring. That way, you’ve got more scratch to spend on even more gorgeous, hard-to-find sustainable seeds the following year.
