Week 4 of 2012 Season

Expected Harvest:
Each week I will send out a list of what we expect to harvest and distribute to our CSA members that week.  But, please remember that this list is just an estimate based on a quick walk-through of our fields and not a guarantee of what will be at the pick-ups.  What we are actually able to harvest may change according to how things look when we are out in the fields that day. 

New this week…
beets
bok choy – shuko (a smaller, green-stemmed variety)
cabbage – green or red
peas – shell

Plus more of…
beans – French variety
bok choy – joi choi (a large, white-stemmed variety)
broccoli
garlic scapes
kale – winterbor
kohlrabi
head lettuce – butterhead, red oakleaf, and green oakleaf varieties
lettuce mix – a blend of red, green, and speckled loose leaf lettuces
peas – sugar snap or snow or shell
radishes – french breakfast
scallions
spinach – large, but tender leaves of a savoyed variety
swiss chard
turnips – hakurei (the sweet, white variety)

Bonus Herbs:
basil

Future harvests…
This will most likely be the last week for our Spring spinach, and our broccoli harvest is also slowing.  Our main planting of peas is just starting to come in so we are hoping to have them at least for this and next week.  Soon (perhaps by next week) we will have summer squash and zucchini and the cucumbers won’t be too far behind.  Our purplette onions (mini, red onions) and potatoes are also sizing up nicely, so we are hoping to have some ready to harvest in a week or two.
