In the Share: Week 4
FORELLENSCHLUSS LETTUCE We love this Austrian heirloom which is a romaine but also tender and, as someone said, "appears to have spattered with a good red wine."
BUTTERHEAD LETTUCE glorious softballs of butter!
STRAWBERRIES precious little pints this week. Concentrated flavor.
KALE, CHARD OR SPROUTING BROCCOLI
GARLIC SCAPES This week only. Get your scape on!
IN TWO WEEKS: lettuce, green onions, greens,herbs.
It is starting to feel like summer. Our little sabbatical tomato patch (200 plants vs. 900 for the last many years) is growing well and just got it's second string.
The farm is definitely more on schedule than ever before. In the background are the cucumbers under insect barrier to keep away the pesky beetles. We've missed alot of the storms that have been just south of us at times. It was dry enough today we were able to hoe around the leeks.
