Box Contents:

1 lb Asparagus

1 bu Red Torpedo Spring Onions

1 bu Red Russian Kale

1 bu Red Beets

1 bu Green Garlic

1 bu Oregano

1 bu Tokyo Turnips

Box Notes: The very cool weather has kept the asparagus harvest steady. Usually by this time of year, the asparagus is starting to slow down. New this week: Red Russian Kale! We’re starting to harvest the spring greens. While the weather is still cool, squeeze in a roasted root dish by combining the beets and turnips with asparagus. Roast all 3 together. Cut the beets and turnips into ½ inch square pieces, and the asparagus into 3rds, coat/toss all with olive oil, layer flat on a cookie sheet and sprinkle salt over all. Roast at 350 degrees until all are soft inside/crisp on the outside. You may need to turn/flip the veggies with a spatula about 20 minutes into the roasting time to crisp all sides.


Field Notes: With the recent storm, we received 2 inches of rain! This is very rare for the month of May. The rainfall will give us a respite from moving irrigation pipe for a little while.
