Yalaha, FL:  Still Summer but I do have the Micros and Shoots.

Market Open But we have only limited stuff in summer.

I Did Create a Fish Camp Shoots and Micros Mix because we have had a request from a customer to be able to get the stuff to make their own salad like Fish Camp does. So Look for that. The summer mix is pretty much just Buckwheat shoots (with hulls sometimes) Pea Shoots, and Radish Microgreens. Fish camp adds this to lettuce the bring in from elsewhere during summer when it is impossible to grow outdoors locally.

If anyone wants Regular Chives, I have those as well as little chive seedlings available. If there is demand I can list them for you. Also available but not listed are Dill seedlings and curly Parsley seedlings.

The regular ordering window is now through Thursday 8am for Friday-Sunday pickup.

I may still be able to take orders after Thursday Morning but can’t guarantee availability of things as I may have already packed them for the Restaurants.
Ordering window is Monday Afternoon (or when I open it) through Thursday Morning and pick up will be Friday-Sunday by appointment until we expand more, Please indicate when you would like to pick up when you place your order.

Remember to tell me when you want to pick up! (and if I don’t reply to confirm within a day, bump my e-mail or text me 407-342-8515. Though I have cleaned up my e-mail so hopefully I won’t Miss Anyone.)

Sign in to order.

You have to sign in to see the add to cart button. Then set the number and click the add to cart button on the items you want to buy (it is the little picture right next to the quantity box.) Remember you need to check out before your order will be placed.
Remember to let me know when you want to pick up on Sat or maybe even Friday late afternoon or on Sunday. (If I don’t send you an e-mail confirmation of your order and pick up time, please make sure you checked out and completed your order.)

Linwood Lamb:
Try our lamb steaks this week. These are large cuts weighting 1-1 ½ pounds per package. There are 2
