Lise and Sandra are busy working in the greenhouse these days and have started several hundred lettuces and mustard greens.
Sandra used to grow these mixed greens and sell to restaurants in Ottawa, but had to put it on the back burner while we got Peches up and running. Now, as we have so little to do, and do not want to turn to a life of crime to keep ourselves busy, we are resurrecting the organically grown mixed salad greens and offering freshly picked greens to Almonte and area residents and maybe a couple of local restaurants.
We are doing it on a subscription for the season basis. IE you would sign up for 10 weeks, pay up front and choose the day (or days) on which you will pick up your greens each week at Peches. This way, we pick your greens the morning of your pick up and you have pretty much the freshest greens you can have short of growing your own!
We are offering 6 days to choose from for pick up: Tuesday through Sunday. You can choose either a $5.- or $10.- bag, and, you can choose as many days as you like given there is enough space on that day. There are 7 ‘slots’ available for each day.
If you are interested in signing up, please call us at the shop (613) 256-5764, Email us at email@example.com or drop in (other than Monday).
The first greens should be ready to harvest late Sept and we hope to keep picking through late November or even into early December depending on the weather and our backs!
