Clemson SC:  Weblog Entry


Good morning! your market is open for ordering. We are working on a more lengthy and “newsey” newsletter to follow; which we have to squeeze in between planting the future harvests. :-)
You will find new edible flowers, greens, and spring onions added to this week’s fare, plus additional meat cuts from Bar T Ranch. For Clemson folks, you may have to go to www.upstatesc.locallygrown.net to see all the cuts of beef, then make a note for us on your Clemson order, as Mr. Taylor is in the process of listing all the cuts on Clemson site.
And, Oh, yes, it has been great weather for strawberries! Remember that the season only lasts for a short while, so please order ahead and freeze for future use, so you can have local strawberries throughout the year.
A tip: rinse your strawberries in a solution of vinegar and water, and you will find that they last longer.
The newsletter to follow will give you ideas on how to use edible flowers in your everyday meals, not only to make them pretty, but also to add to your health!
Happy shopping!
