Week 5 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…
purplette onions
summer squash and zucchini

Plus more of…
beets
cabbage – green and red
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
swiss chard
turnips – hakurei (the sweet, white variety)

Bonus Herb:
dill

Future harvests…
Our spinach, broccoli and bok choy have finished for the spring.  And, this will most likely be our last week for head lettuce.  (But, we will continue to do our best to grow and harvest lettuce mix throughout the summer.)  The summer squash are now coming in and we may even have some cucumbers this week.  And, our main planting of peas is ready to pick, so we should be able to offer lots of sugar snap and shell peas this week.
