This is the end...thursday, march 30th that is...
until the big full Farmers Market at Libby starts up May 4th!
I'll be back this year with a full booth of microgreens, salad mix, greens,
and the first flowers of spring!
Until then, the seed starts that will grow up to be the flowers of summer need all the growing space under lights and in the greenhouse, so the microgreens will have to wait a little while.
The break from routine also gives me a chance to switch things up,
dust everything off from winter's slumber,
and prepare for the busy growing season of tending plants, selling at market, and sharing all my gleaned plant knowledge with you fine folk!
But if you want some tasty greens right now,
stop by Thursday March 30th from 12-1pm at the Chamber!
What are Microgreens?
Cottonwood buds are known for their sticky, rich resin this time of year and you might just see me out and about putting some into a jar. Add oil. wait. then strain and add beeswax. and presto! you have an amazing salve that is great for achy joint or muscles, a closed throat, and some headaches. Things were the tissues are tight and constricted but need to soften, flow, and unfurl. Kinda like how the resinous sap pumping into these buds helps the leaves to form and open. I'll have some available this spring right along with my Dragon's Scale Salve.
What's available this week?
Where to find it all?
The Mini Microgreen Market of course
Thursday from 12-1pm at the Libby Chamber of Commerce
*come inside where it's warm & toasty while the micros are chill in their mini cooler*
Select flower seed varieties saved right here on the farm are available at Homesteaders in Libby!
