Broccoli, and other brassicas like kale and cabbage are high in vitamins K, A and C. This will be one of the last weeks for asparagus and possibly peas as well, so enjoy them while they are here and order a case through the web-store if you haven’t already for your freezer.

Field Notes: Today’s high temperature was 87. It feels like the beginning of summer. Temperatures should be up in the nineties next week. We welcome the ease into summer temperatures that we have experienced this spring and hope it continues as long as possible. The transplanting and trellising of tomatoes continues daily. Our tractor drivers are busy cultivating. We hope to begin new potato harvest this week, you can look forward to them in the boxes soon!
