Wagner Enterprises added $4 pint jars of fresh home-grown gooseberries to go along with a wide range of pies, cakes, cookies, and cheesecake.
The Berry Patch added peanut transplants (yes we can grow peanuts in Iowa) and they still have zucchini, fresh cut sweet basil, and parsley, chive, basil, blueberry, and raspberry plants available.
Wildwood Farms added 8 oz bags of red & green spring lettuce mix and 6″ potted strawberry transplants to go along with her salsa, granolas, baking mixes, and roasted nuts.
Raccoon Forks Farm and Sunrise both have garlic scapes still available (great chopped into salads or for pesto, grilling, or simply saute).
SalAmander Farms added fresh dill and a new tomato transplant variety (orange-1, a Russian heirloom with 4-6 oz. light orange fruit with rosy-orange interior).
The move by the Chupp family/Country Lighthouse Bakery to near Atlantic, IA, has been delayed, so Mabel’s offering her baked goods again (try her Cappuccino Chip Muffins) along with fresh rhubarb from her garden (or get some already made in her fresh rhubarb crisp).
Anna’s Place hasn’t been able to offer chicken for quite some time because of the loss of the processing plant in Kimballton, but Ron Bartelt came back this week with three sizes of whole chicken, plus half, cut-up, hindquarters, and breast meat with wings attached.
