New this week:
- peas – sugar snap peas and maybe some snow peas by the end of the week. They are just starting to come in.
Plus more of…
- bok choy – joi choi (a large, white-stemmed variety)
- garlic scapes (for more information, see this article, “The Great Scape: Curls of Green” by Jackie Varriano on Culinate)
- kale – winterbor and lacinato varieties
- kohlrabi (for more information, see “Kohlrabi Recipes: How to Cook the Tricky Vegetable in Your CSA” by Rebecca Orchant at The Huffington Post)
- lettuce mix – a blend of red, green, and speckled loose leaf lettuces
- head lettuce – romaine, red and green oakleaf, and butterhead varieties
- radishes – french breakfast
- spinach – large, but tender leaves of a savoyed variety
Peas are really starting to come in now. So far, we’ve been only picking our early sugar ann snap peas. The snow peas are just starting to come in and our later-maturing sugar snap peas will be ready soon followed by some shell peas.
Excited about Swiss chard? Well, your wait will soon be over. We probably will start harvesting some at the end of this week. Also, our early red and green cabbages are just starting to form little heads and so shouldn’t be too far off. And, as I was peaking under the leaves of the beets, I saw some promising roots developing.
