CSA 5-26

Today brings some beautiful merlot lettuce and some not so beautiful (but delicious) romaine. We have a groundhog or some other varmit taking bites off of it. Tons of greens as well. This is the last cut of the spinach so I have included it in your bag of greens. It would be best to cook this stuff. Ross promises a more bountiful harvest in the fall. Eggs are light this week...not really sure why. I suppose I can just blame the varmit. For the good news...peas are flowering and chinese cabbage is heading.

things are growing very slowly this spring. cold nights and cloudy days and most plants just seems to sit there. spinach - which loves cool weather has been especially disappointing. i planted the spinach in lower beds that get a little shade which in a warm spring would prolong it but it has slowed it up this year. some nice romaines tomorrow and i will be making caesar salads tomorrow in memory of the late great Peter Hasselbalch who specialized in the coddled egg caesar. if you thought you missed peter now wait til you try my caesar.

CSA Week 3

New this week....Red Ruby Lettuce. The lettuce heads are still small but very tasty.
Hoping to see some sun so the lettuce can "fully express".
Also, a mixed bag of greens (Kale, chard, beet greens, collards).
Lots of Radishes (see Dolly) and more spinach. Baby Turks are doing well and
we have a mom ready to sit on about 15 more. We will take early-bird
Thanksgiving orders!
