Rain, rain.

[2016 CSA Week 4]

Farmers have always been at the mercy of the weather, and many of our investments involve mitigating the extremes. Lately it's been extremely dry, but we're thankful for our irrigation system, which we've been running non-stop.  It's a drip system, which puts the moisture right at the base of the plants, limits evaporation, and saves water.

This week's share:

  • Lettuce
  • Carrots
  • Salad greens
  • Hakurei (salad) turnips  -- like sweet radishes
  • Garlic scapes
  • Scallions
  • Peas -- edible podded snap and snow peas
  • Herbs -- dill is now ready to pick

For those of you who want to make garlic scape pesto for freezing, we have bulk scapes available for $4 / lb (that's our wholesale price for 1 lb or more).  Let us know by email if you'd like to reserve some.  They'll be first come first serve.
