Crop List: Cosmic Mix, Fresh Garlic, Oregano, Turnips, Iceberg Lettuce, Swiss Chard and Maybe Sugar Snap Peas
We are in the strange veggie limbo land where spring crops are done, but the summer crops are not quite ripe yet. It happens every year. The tender spring greens are a thing of the past, but the peas, beans, tomatoes and summer squash are not quite yielding yet. The summer crops are getting very close. The plants are loving the heat...and the irrigation!
Fresh garlic! What's the deal? This garlic has not been cured yet. It will not store for a long time like the garlic we give out in the fall. Keep it in the fridge. It is super juicy and the paper is still forming. You can use the stalks for veggie stock.
Iceberg lettuce, yum! After years and years of eating tender baby greens Jed and I got excited about growing lettuce with some crunch! You can eat all the leaves on the head, not just the ones in the center.
All the plants are loving the heat, including the weeds. We are hiring weeders. If you know anyone who wants work, we have a job! Please email me for more info.
Workshare Lunch this week: Pesto over quinoa with turnips and bok choy. The quinoa is lighter feeling then pasta when it's hot!
Recipe Idea: Super Simple Swiss Chard over a burger or French Chard Tart
