Asparagus still looks limited this week. I cut asparagus every morning. On warm, sunny days the spears grow practically overnight; after chilly, cloudy days there isn't much to speak of. I never know exactly how much we're going to have available for the week since it's such a weather-dependent crop, but heat + light = asparagus, and hopefully we'll have a little more if this week's forecast holds true.
Still loads of eggs available, lots of baby chard and green onions this week. The same vegetable can vary quite a bit over the seasons, and the chard is at my favorite stage right now! We're still cutting from a bed of over-wintered chard, and while the leaves are still a sweet "baby" size, the leaves are thicker, crunchier, and meatier than warm-weather-grown chard. Check out this week's chard slaw recipe!
The tomato plants and most of the pepper starts are ready! You can take a look at the varieties we have available over here, along with some tips for getting your tomato beds prepared. We also have just a few zucchini plants available after setting out our own on the farm (this week only). Definitely looks warm enough to plant now!
