Spring seems to have flown by and Nicole and I have been working pretty steadily. We just finished planting last week and now we’re on to harvesting!
Last week we were fortunate to have a friend of Nicoles, Isaac, (seen below pruning chard) visiting the farm and helping out. It seems help keeps showing up right when we need it. We’re looking forward to having Kitana join us next week when she returns from her world travels.
Yesterday ( while I was in the city) we got 3.5 inches of rain. I called Nicole at 10 pm to see how the day went, and she was still in the field digging drains So thanks Nicole!
This week in your box:
You will have choices among the following :
Lettuce, spinach, kale, chard, turnips, radish, kholrabi, happy rich ( a Broccoli x Gailon cross), Broccolli, Pac Choi, Parsley, Dill, cilantro, arugula, mizuna, alfalfa sprouts and scallions.
The organic Alfalfa sprouts are from ‘Mumms sprouts’. Alfalfa sprouts are great in salads and sandwiches and are a source of: Vitamin C, carotene, chlorophyll, vitamin K and many other nutrients.
Happy rich looks, grows and can be cooked like broccoli raab, but it is sweet not spicy. So it is also great raw.
For mustard greens, the arugula is spicy and the mizuna is mild.
