Red (purple), green, ruffled, and more - cooking mustards. Cook as you would any other cooking green - but this one cooks very quickly (just wilt it) and there is no need to remove the stems as they are very tender. We stir fry them with a splash of olive oil, garlic, pepper and [...]
After many years of growing watermelons, this is one of our favourite heirlooms - Yellow Skin and richly pink, sweet, and delicious flesh - amazing! Originally from China, it is an fabulous melon which goes under the names of "Golden Crown," "Golden Midget," and "Diana" - three names for the same heirloom melon. Enjoy!
This heirloom cucumber (from Asia) is one of our favourites! It is crisp and delicious - a true taste of summer! And the skin is very nice and not too thick and certainly not bitter like you find in many standard cucumber varieties. There will be truckloads in the weeks to come.

The absolute best wild mushroom around. Every part of it can be consumed, and although many recipes explain how to savour every piece of them, we just saute them lightly in butter and pepper and enjoy! The are not cultivated - so Mother Natures determines how many we have and for how long!! Enjoy the [...]
