Friends of ours started a food garden foregoing chemicals. It’s not easy to do. A naturally-grown (without chemicals) garden is more susceptible to weeds, pests and other perils. They have had such success with their plants they are now thinking of going into public sale of some of their food offerings, from arugula to kale, Boston bibb, Toscano (AKA Dragon kale), root veggies, herbs, starter plants, a juicer bag, all grown the natural way.
Then comes the piece de resistance! It’s called WIG, or What I’ve Got. After testing the sales of bags of the above, whatever is left will be bagged together and sold as WIG. This changes markedly each week: I’ve gotten beets, greens and scallions the size of leeks tied in with carrots and radishes. Other times I’ve gotten the Dragon kale (it’s really good!) with beets, chard and broccoli florets. I start eating the minute I get my WIG bag.
I love being a tester! The Jubinskys will soon begin selling in a farmers market in downtown Havana.
