Harvests are building strength. Our new apprentices are getting their first experience of managing their crops. We’ve spent every morning this week harvesting at least two crops from our tunnels and fields. The cooler is full of produce! Boxes are stacked nearly to the ceiling. It’s been too long. Our coolers haven’t looked this good since last summer. The struggles with the weather last fall, and resulting crop failures, left our coolers half full at best. It’s wonderful to step into the cooler and see the spring crops stacked higher than my head. So much good food!
For those of you who love our eggs, great news! We had one chicken, out of 400, laying eggs for almost two weeks. This week the rest of the flock started laying and we’ll have a few pullet eggs for sale this Sunday. In just a few weeks they’ll be at full production, and we will have plenty of the eggs you rely on.
At Market: kohlrabi will make its market debut this Sunday. We will have mountains of Lettuce, Kale, Chard, Radishes, Spinach, Arugula, and Rhubarb. It all tastes spectacular, I’ve been enjoying big salads for breakfast and dinner every chance I get. The herbs have also outdone themselves, cilantro, dill, chives, oregano, mint, sage, parsley, and basil will all be available at market on Sunday.
