Okinawa spinach is HERE! Get It today at the 326 Community Market!




THIS WEEK:

Finally, the Okinawa spinach plants are ready for market!

Okinawa spinach is a delicious perennial green that loves the heat and also looks quite ornamental.

See pictures and a plant profile over at Grower Jim's. Here in North Florida it needs some protection to stay alive through the winter, but I've kept it along the south wall of my house for a few years without covering it. It's one of the best greens we grow... too eat it is to feel healthy.

Also, I still have a limited amount of 3-gallon Southern Highbush blueberries. They sold well last week and everyone that tasted the berries was impressed.

I'll be at the 326 Market in Ocala today.

My wonderful selections include:

OKINAWA SPINACH: $5.00

SELF-POLLINATING BEAUTIFUL BLUEBERRIES: $15.00

APPLES (Anna and Dorsett) $20.00 

PEARS $20.00

POMEGRANATES (Various) $20.00

FIGS (Various) $20.00

MULBERRIES (Black and Everbearing - very limited supply) $20.00

NECTARINES (UF Varieties!) $20.00

JAPANESE PERSIMMONS (SOLD OUT)

MUSCADINE GRAPES (Black and Green) $9.00

THORNLESS BLACKBERRIES $9.00

BABY MORINGA TREES $8.00

CHINESE GREEN TEA $8.00

CASSAVA $5.00

Stop on by before I sell out. The plants have been moving fast and I'm almost out of mulberries again.

The 326 Community Market runs every Thursday from 3 - 7PM and is really easy to find.

Google map is here. Their Facebook page is here (with lots more photos and info):

My prices are good and my gardening advice is free.

Beyond what I carry, there are also folks selling melt-in-your-mouth Florida peaches, goat milk cheese and soap, handcrafts, recycled pallet wood furniture, fresh lemonade, ice cream, dolls and lovely homemade greeting cards (seriously - this gal does nice work - buy her cards - at $1 each, they beat Hallmark!), crafts, vegetables, baked goods, homemade jams and jellies (really good), local raw honey, farm eggs, rabbits, homemade birdhouses, butterfly plants and more.

The other week I also got some fresh homemade ice cream from Jersey Creamery. Amazing.

It's a great group of people and very friendly... the way a local market should be.

Come on down!
