In this week's share, and U-pick update
This week's share, Pac Choy (full shares only), mesclun, and lettuce. We are rotating spinach, summer squash, broccoli, kale, radish, and edible-podded peas.
A note on 'rotated crops': In our early CSA farming days, we thought that it would be good to split any harvested crop over the whole CSA membership. Soon we found out that this results in culinary problems. For example, what would you do with one ounce of green beans? So that's why we introduced the idea of rotating crops among the pick-up sites, so you'll always receive a sufficient amount of one kind of produce to actually cook with. And rest assured: we keep good notes so our rotations are equally distributed.
It's still too early for harvests in the U-pick garden. Things are growing rapidly though. We'll let you know as soon as there are crops ready for harvest!
