Week 4 of 2013 Season

Expected Harvest:

New this week 

  • red beets
  • cilantro
  • dill

Plus more of… 

  • bok choy – joi choi (a large, white-stemmed variety)
  • broccoli (At this point, we’ve harvested most of the main heads and are now picking the smaller side shoots.  We’ll see how long they’ll last, but it looks like our spring broccoli is coming to an end.)
  • cabbage, red and green varieties
  • garlic scapes
  • kale – winterbor and lacinato varieties
  • kohlrabi
  • lettuce mix – a blend of red, green, and speckled loose leaf lettuces
  • head lettuce – butterhead, red and green oakleaf varieties
  • peas – shell, sugar snap & snow
  • radishes – french breakfast
  • scallions
  • spinach – large, but tender leaves of a savoyed variety (This is also getting close to finishing up for the spring. Much of our planting looks like it is getting close to starting send up its flowering stalk.)
  • swiss chard – rainbow mix

Bonus Herbs:

  • (see above)

Coming Soon:

We are just starting to harvest the first of our summer squash, but so far we’ve only picked a few pounds.  Hopefully, next week we’ll have a big enough harvest to share with you all.

Our basil plants are finally starting to grow, so we should have some fresh basil ready for you soon.

Cucumbers are also growing well and just starting to flower.  We should have some ready in a couple f weeks.  We’ve planted regular slicing, pickling, and lemon cucumbers again this year.
