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…
flowers (snap dragons and black-eyed susan or rudbeckia)
fresh softneck garlic – variety: chet’s italian red
new potatoes: most likely dark red norland (red-skinned, white interior)
bonus herbs: cilantro
Plus more of…
cabbage – green and red
cucumbers – slicing and pickling
kale – winterbor
lettuce mix – a blend of red, green, and speckled loose leaf lettuces
onions – purplette (mini red onions)
peas – sugar snap or shell
summer squash, patty pan squash & zucchini (green or golden)
turnips – hakurei (the sweet, white variety)
Our head lettuce and French breakfast radishes have now finished for the spring. We’ll probably have green beans, carrots and possibly eggplant on offer next week. Our cherry tomatoes are also just starting to ripen, but we only picked about a pint today, so it might be a week or so until we have enough to offer at pick-ups.
