CILANTRO AND DILL
IN TWO WEEKS: strawberries, lettuce, greens, garlic scapes, herbs.
Spring is flying by. Worries of frost have been replaced by worries of hail storms. On Wednesday, severe hail was supposedly on its way. So we rushed around pulling the covers back over the beds of our tenderest crops.
Luckily no hail came, just strong winds and rain. By Saturday's CSA morning we were back in the fields weeding onions. We also managed to wash more crates. We like to give the hundreds of crates we use a good scrub and sanitizing every Spring and periodically throughout the season. It is just a small part of our farm-wide food safety plan that keeps our produce fresh and healthy. Washing crates isn't a glamorous job but it is essential. Thanks to all who pitched in!
