New Late Spring Menu

Last week we started our new menu. It is full of local grown vegetables. Jeff Isbell's farmstead salad with radish, sweet onions and heirloom yellow pear tomatoes finished with honey comb vinaigrette. We added a blackened tuna on flat bread with basil goat cheese pesto, shaved red onions and micro greens. Cornmeal fried gulf oysters, lemon tarter sauce, slaw, and pickled okra. The dish I'm really happy about is the grilled flat iron steak, vidalia onion gratin, asparagus, and chimichurri butter. I will post pictures soon of the new dishes.

This heirloom tomato was found by Amy Goldman. Author of The Heirloom Tomato from Farm to Table. She found it at a road side stand in Cernobbio Italy in 1999 . It was named Goldman's Italian American after her father grocery store in Brooklyn. I was able to score a few seeds from her.

Household Weed Killer

Mix 1 gallon of vinegar, 1 cup table salt with 1 oz. of liquid dish detergent. The soap works to break down the waxy surface on the leaves, allowing the vinegar to work more efficiently. It also helps the solution to stick to the leaves, giving the vinegar time to kill the weed.

Fill a spray bottle with the solution and spray weeds thoroughly. The solution will kill any plant it comes in contact with. Use care to avoid over-spray to neighboring plants. Small weeds will shrivel and die within 24 hours. Repeat application if regrowth occurs from the roots.

Pour the solution directly on the roots of large weeds that have extensive root systems. Plants like burdock may take a day or two to die off. Once the root withers and becomes soft, pull the root from the soil.Be careful,good luck.

Thanks to all that was at the Saturday Market
