SUGARSNAP PEAS (F/P) These are edible-podded peas. Just snap the top, pull any strings that may come with it and pop it in your mouth.
KOHLRABI (F/P) Introducing the kohlrabi – We have enough for everyone to get one. More are on their way. Peel it well and eat raw or cook lightly.
LETTUCE (F2/P1) Too much lettuce in your fridge? Check Tom’s recipe for wilted lettuce salad.
STRAWBERRIES (F/P) A quart for all. What a great crop this year! We are glad so many of you came out for u-pick and ordered bulk. Who can say n"No" to a fresh, local, no-spray strawberry? Non-organic berries, as a picker on Saturday said, are “chemical sponges”.
GARLIC SCAPES (F/P) The hardneck garlic’s flower stalk. Very edible and tasty. Great with the creamy garlic dressing we make at the farm with our fresh eggs. A different version than last week’s yogurt-based recipe, Tom's got a link this week.
BROCCOLI (P) We are happy to get the partial shares their “fair share” of broccoli. It has been a disappointing harvest and this is the last of it. Luckily the plants made one last dash and made lots of side-shoots after the main head was picked.
HERB CHOICE (F) Rosemary, taragon, garlic chives or a dried herb
SPRING ONIONS (F) A bit of a bulb on these, but still with fresh tops.
KALE OR CHARD (F) The greens love all of this moisture. Expect more in the weeks to come.
NEXT WEEK: More peas, lettuce, strawberries and kohlrabi. Cabbage and spring turnips.
FARM REPORT: The fields were filled this past weekend thanks to an amazing strawberry harvest. The weather was perfectly pleasant and lots of you came out with family and friends in tow.
