Tamales! Opening Bell: Chard, Honey, Plants, Carrots!


Hello friends!

On Saturday morning the 4th annual plant sale hosted by Bell urban farm was a huge success! It was great to see hundreds of people coming out to get plants for their gardens. Over 1500 plants left our table in less than two hours, but I kept some back at Cedar rock Ridge for this week’s market. If you need marigolds, basil, or Cherokee purple tomatoes, act fast before they’re gone.

The garlic beds are looking very good right now. The plants are just starting to bulb so we should be digging and curing them early June.

Strack Farm says their asparagus is still doing well. Get it while you can! And the carrots from Rattle’s Garden are amazingly flavorful and crisp. Great for stirfry or broiled. Spinach, Turnips, Swiss Chard, Lettuce and Kale are also available. There’s some wonderful spring eating right there! Food is medicine.

Tamales!
Pork, chicken or jalapeño & cheese.
Five for $7. All same kind.
At market this Friday, April 23rd.
Text me your order.
501–339-1039

Lots of green garlic available this week. Season is almost over so I’ll be digging and dehydrating the rest of the crop in a week or so.

Be sure to SEARCH for your favorite items using the search field. For instance, type in the word “plant” or “pork” and see what pops up. We have almost 500 items available now!

Most items are listed by 6pm Sunday, but check back again before the market closes Tuesday night to see if any other items are ready to be harvested for you! Eat fresh! Eat local! Eat for better health!

And save your eggshells throughout the week for the laying hens! :-)

In accordance with the current guidelines, we will not have more than 10 people in the lobby at any time. We have four volunteers who can bring your order to your car if you prefer, just call or text 501-339-1039.
