Strawberries and Rhubarb

McClendon’s Select will be at the Old Town Scottsdale Farmers Market tomorrow with two of your seasonal favorites – local, organic strawberries and organic rhubarb.  Both of these are coming just in time for spring pies and cobblers.  They are both vibrant in color and so flavorful.  Mary will also be sampling mini Persian cucumbers at the market with a sprinkling of truffled salt and Meyer Lemon juice.  Come stop by!

transplanting watermelon

There has been a lot going on at the farm lately.  Sean has been busy transplanting yellow and red seedless watermelon (photo above), as well as planted  several varieties of the heirloom tomatoes, speciality sweet peppers and basil.  We also harvested these bunched red beets this morning for the market tomorrow…

There will be both red and gold bunched beets at the markets this week, along with beautiful Goodyear, AZ grown organic strawberries.  Mary will be sampling Persian Mini Cucumbers with truffled salt and Meyer Lemon juice.  These cucumbers are crisp and flavorful and are perfect to serve raw or pickled.  See you at the markets!

Persian Cucumbers

Tomorrow will be an ideal morning to come to the Old Town Scottsdale Farmers Market. Spring training games (and their subsequent parking problems) have ended and the weather is giving us a cool break for the weekend.  We will have Persian cucumbers at the market tomorrow morning.  They have a smooth, thin skin to them and are crisp and sweet.  Even better, they are void of developed seeds.  I think these are the best tasting of all cucumbers.  Come pick some up tomorrow!

 

More strawberries…

Good news – the spring training game tomorrow in Scottsdale doesn’t start until 3:00pm, which means it shouldn’t cause any parking problems tomorrow morning during the Old Town Scottsdale farmers market.

We will have plenty of beautiful Arizona grown organic strawberries with us again.  These have become our new after school snack with a little honey on top.  See you tomorrow at the market!

strawberries

Good news – tomorrow parking at the Old Town Scottsdale Farmers Market will be much easier without a spring training game or the Arts Festival.  McClendon’s Select will be featuring these beautiful Arizona grown organic strawberries.  We will also have the last of the season organic Sugar Snap Peas.  If you haven’t tried them yet this season, don’t miss out.

We will also have plenty of freshly harvested organic celery.  This celery is the best we have ever grown, with a crisp, wonderful flavor and a beautiful color.  The photo below was just sent to me from the field while the celery is being harvested.  It doesn’t get fresher or more local that that.  See you tomorrow at the market!
