365 Project Day 258: A Farm Grows in Nola

In New Orleans we're cursed with a six-month-long summer, but that also means an extra-long growing season.  Nowhere is this more evident that at Hollygrove Market and Farm.  While all of the area's farmers markets showcase how much produce south Louisiana has to offer, at Hollygrove you can actually see it growing.  It's quite wonderful.

Last week we looked at what comes in "the box" this time of year; today we'll look at what they're still growing, even this late in the season.

Herbs:

Rosemary

Sage

Mint

Basil
Peppers:

Bell pepper

Banana pepper



Eggplant:

Eggplant

Fairytale eggplant
Melons:

Winter melon

Personal-size watermelon

Some Nola favorites:

Long beans

Muscadine grapes

Okra

Some more exotic selections:

Nopales

Olives

And of course, some lovely green onions.

  1. Gosh, I'm so jealous of the okra and olives, they won't grow here (Belgium).

    (Isn't that second picture, where it sates 'thyme', sage?)
