Hydroponic Lettuce

We’ve been busy this winter- ordering supplies, attending trade shows and conferences, and taking time to visit with the grandchildren.  But we’ve had one really big job- building a new greenhouse, where we’re growing hydroponic lettuce.  Grown in water, with no soil at all, these tiny little plants are well on their way to being harvested and sold at all of our retail locations in New Jersey and NYC.  We can’t wait to have you try our butterhead and red butterhead lettuce this summer!

What’s Fresh: Week of May 27

Veggies & Herbs: Asparagus (almost done!), arugula, radishes, kale, assorted lettuce, chives, cilantro, beets (red and gold) parsley, scallions, rosemary, oregano, leeks, spearmint, peppermint, rainbow chard, 1st carrots, baby red romaine, white beets and the VERY FIRST spring garlic!

Fruit: Strawberries

Plants: Herb, vegetable, & bedding plants.  In caged patio pots: tomatoes, peppers, & eggplant

Specialty: Big bunches of spearmint- perfect for cool summer drinks!

Coming Soon: Basil, red onions, and candy onions
