In the Share: Week 2x
WALKING ONIONS an early perennial, eat as you would any green onion.
RED LEAF LETTUCE
RADISHES & TURNIPS
BOK CHOY & TAT SOI
FALL CARROTS Last of the storage carrots. Sometime in June we should have the first of the fresh crop.
RED RUSSIAN KALE From out in the field. We'll save the rest for the start of the 24-week season in 2 weeks, but the biggest leaves are perfect for picking now.
HERB MIX Cilantro, dill, chive flowers
NEXT WEEK: lettuce, asparagus, green onions, green garlic, arugula, bok choy, herbs and radishes.
With all of the spring crops in, the rains have been appreciated. You can almost watch the lettuce grow.
Rainy days find us in the greenhouse potting up the summer crops. The eggplant is ready even if the weather is not quite yet. We will wait as long as we can to make sure that we are past any freezes.
The CSA workers have been a great help in getting in the harvest and tending to the fields. We like to hay mulch vegetables like the Swiss chard that will stay on in the fields into the summer.
