Although the 4th of July always adds some confusion to our share distributions, we still love it. Happy Independence Day!
This week's share consists of Kale, savoy green cabbage, arugula, mixed asian greens, zucchini and zephyr summer squash, edible pea shoot bouquets (the last of the season), baby onions, garlic scapes, and some interesting lettuce varieties.
Garlic. The "Scape" (the swan necked thing at the top), is actually its flower stalk. they will bloom in a few weeks if we don't pick them off. we pick them off so the garlic plant will put all its energy into making a bigger bulb, (and so we can eat them). you can dice them up and use them as you would garlic.
Its been slow growing with all the cool weather, but we do have most of our summer crops in the ground at this point--- and they are looking great!
The final Spring Share with be Wed May28th. Thanks again for sharing in our harvest!

Its been cold and windy all season. We are lucky to have hoophouses to provide shelter and minimize crop damage!
