It’s hot!

We have had some hot days. We lost our air conditioning at the Farm too. It was old so understandable but nonetheless, a curve ball.The plants are happy, the humans, not so much. The seedlings in the ebb are big as a result…apparently they like the heat.

Arugula’s Spicy Sister

I promise I will get over my Arugula posts…right after this one. Did you know there is something called Wasabi Arugula? It’s the spicy sister of Arugula with the taste of wasabi. The whole plant is edible. If you like wasabi, you should try some – spicy sisters need love too!

What gets you excited?

At Lansdowne Urban Farms its getting new seeds to try! This is a recent batch of new seeds. Can’t wait to see how they do in our hydroponic environment.

This week at the Farm!

More varieties are coming soon! Also this week, we have a Lettuce Leaf Basil special. Order early for best results.

Come on out tonight! Our Parris Island Cos Romaine is ready and delicious! In the next 10 days, we will have Black Magic Kale and Lettuce Leaf Basil and a new Japanese Green called Chijimisai that is loaded with flavor and nutrients.
