Herbs galore!

I need to get some more batteries for my camera, but I went walking through the herb field last night and was astonished at how well the herbs look. They are nice and bushy big and green! Except for the purple basil :) that is dark purple! They look amazing.

We will be bringing herb bunches to market this weekend. Otsiningo and Ithaca Market.

We got our tea bags in the mail yesterday so today I will be working on putting our first sets of tea bags together. Is there any specific types of teas you would like to see?

We also purchased our Iced tea dispenser as well hoping it arrives before market Saturday at Otsiningo. Today I am mixing some Lemongrass, Rosemary and Thyme tea together to make sure that that is the tea we want to serve! We had a customer one of our first years down at Downtown Binghamton Farmer's Market buy a Lemongrass plant from us. When she came back the next week she informed us that she made Lemongrass Thyme tea and that it was delicious. I was searching for a good recipe online yesterday and found one for Lemongrass, Rosemary, Thyme tea. I am very excited to try it. If it comes out well we will be bringing it to Otsiningo Farmer's Market this weekend!

We will also have more fruit this weekend. We will definitely have Methley plums from Cornell University Orchards.

Also, Otsiningo Farmer's Market extended their pruchasing distances and now have included PA. So we are hoping to get PA peaches, watermelon, cantaloupe and some other goodies. It is not definite yet, but hopefully the variety is expanding.
