It’s a rainy Tuesday morning as we wait to harvest this afternoon for tomorrow’s shares. So far we’ve had an hour of heavy rain after a few hours of drizzle off and on. The forecast looks dry for this afternoon so hopefully we’ve had just enough rain to freshen the harvest nicely, but not enough to keep us out of the garden. This is our third week of the Spring/Summer season and with 13 weeks left, we have shares available if others would like to join us. Here’s how to sign up. And remembers to check out our Facebook page or Instagram for regular updates on the farm.
Notes from the field: This week we are getting our first taste of baby carrots! We are so excited about this year’s crop! We planted more than ever before and had about 100% germination which means we will be harvesting thousands of carrots over the next 6 weeks or longer! We will have primarily orange carrots, but we are also growing purple and yellow varieties. We can’t wait to share the harvest with you!
Here’s what’s expected in our Spring week 3 shares:
(Shares may vary slightly depending on field/garden conditions)
Half Share: Lettuce mix (double portion), Head lettuce, Onions, Beet greens, Radishes, Swiss Chard, Kale, Dill
Full Share: Lettuce mix (double portion), Head lettuce (double portion), Onions, Beet greens, Radishes (double portion), Swiss Chard (double portion), Kale, Dill, Broccoli greens, Broccoli/broccoli flowers, Carrots
The full shares may receive broccoli flowers this week. These are beautiful as well as delicious, with a mild broccoli flavor. They are a perfect topping on salad, pizza or pasta!
We love this easy pasta recipe – it’s delicious with kale, chard, beet greens or a combination of all three!
