Box Contents:

1 lb Asparagus

1 bu Carrots

1 bu Chioggia Beets

1 bu Spring Onions

1 bu Rosemary

1/2 lb Bok Choy

1/4 lb Baby Lettuce

1 bu Collard Greens

Box Notes: Chioggia beets are a pink and white concentrically striped beet with a mild, sweet flavor. They make a beautifully colorful, scrumptious salad. Cook then slice, then toss with a vinaigrette dressing, add salt and pepper and thinly sliced spring onions, chill and top with crumbled goat cheese. Beets make a great cold salad for this upcoming wave of heat that’s forecasted for the end of the week. Tip: When boiling Chioggia beets, add a splash of lemon juice or white vinegar to keep their color from fading.


Field Notes: Our potato crop will soon be ready, in about 2 weeks. We’ll be harvesting some of the spud crop early, when the skin is not yet set, as “new” potatoes. Then the rest of the crop will be harvested over time as needed with set skins. We’re looking forward to offering these new items in June: potatoes, summer squash, cucumbers, and green beans.
