This Week's Share: Fresh Garlic, Onions and Greens

Here are the details of this week's share. The amounts are smaller than we had hoped because the farm hasn't received any rain. We're irrigating the crops that we can, but everything would benefit from a good downpour. Fingers crossed for rain later this week!

With that, here's what you'll find in this week's share:

  • 2 heads of garlic
  • 1/2 pound of onions (some bunching onions and some cipollini onions)
  • 1/4 total combo lettuce + radish + sugar snaps + greens for salad (like arugula, spicy mix, etc.)
  • 1/2 pound total chard + kale + collards
  • 1/2 pound total zucchini + bok choy

On U-Pick this week:

  • Strawberries -- A few strawberries still remain on the vine. If you're already out at the farm, they're delicious. They're just not a bunch of them.  
  • Herbs: There is a large variety, including mint, oregano, sorrel, lemon balm, thyme, lavender, sage and others!
  • Rhubarb is still available, but the same warning applies: It's a hike to the field. Directions can be found at the wash station.
  • Spicy Mix
  • Arugula
  • Swiss chard
  • Mulberries are still available but are starting to decline. We suggest putting a sheet underneath the trees and shaking the tree to harvest them! Here are some ideas of what to do with them.
  • Wild black raspberries are starting to be more prevalant, growing wildly on the farm.
  • Flowers: Any flowers that are growing wild are also fair game for picking.

A preview of next week.

Here are notable things to look for coming up in future shares:

  • The first cucumbers will be in next week's share. 
  • Cabbage will likely come back next week, too.
  • We expect to have carrots in two weeks. 

If you have any questions, let me know!

Do you think you will have garlic next week? Do most people use the garlic fresh or let it dry and cure first?
