Meet Mr. Oliver Earle, a SC Certified urban farmer. Mr. Earle’s garden is located on Sullivan Street, at the West End of downtown Greenville. Depending on the season, he grows a variety of produce and plants that are for sale at the Easley Farmer’s Market.
His trusted guard Chihuahua warns intruders that his garden is not for the neighborhood. It’s his business. And he means business.
Mr. Earle reminds us that after you harvest lettuce, wash in your refrigerator. Add a little water to the bottom of a cup, it’s better to store your lettuce upright and it will keep it fresh.
With a naughty grin, Mr. Earle slips me a little ‘sal’ to sneak into my family’s salad, a bitter lettuce that taste like green apple.
Fresh picked asparagus. Nothing like it.
Time for a much-deserved beer. Thanks for the visit.
