Spring, week 5

The shares just keep getting better. Today we have Samantha red leaf lettuce, abundant bloomsdale spinach, 5 color silverbeet (aka chard) bunches, hakurei turnips, french breakfast radishes, green onions, flat leaf parsley, sugar snap peas and the first carrots of the year! Thursday may see a slightly different share this week. It’s likely there’ll be snow peas instead of the snaps, possibly a different herb, but it will all even itself out by next week.

The fields are looking good after this weekend’s rain. As always the rain will bring a flush of weeds so we’ll try to keep on top of those before they get away from us. That, lots of trellising work and cleaning up from the first weeks of harvest should keep us busy this week.
