A glimpse of this weeks' forecast has convinced me to remember fondly the weather of the last several days and focus on the positive: spring will come (at some point) and the days are getting longer. Fortunately, we still have plenty of crops in storage and, more importantly, salad greens are waking up and deciding to grow. We are by no means swamped with greens but we are finally getting some good cuts.
Although we have plenty of storage crops yet to eat, this will be the last offering of watermelon radishes in the share. Last season we ran out before Christmas, so it is an improvement to make it this far. Next season we'll aim for the entire winter. Greens this week will again be a mix of varieties: yukina, arugula, pink lettuce mustard and kale.
This weeks' share:
2 lbs potatoes
3 lbs carrots
1 lb watermelon radish
1 lb purple top turnips
1 lb parsnips
1 head cabbage
1 bag of salad greens
1 frozen item (choice of several different)
