First Spring Share
Looks like a great first share this week to kick off the spring season. Due to the late start we have a few extra radishes. There's a leek, which will have particularly flavorful greens, two types of lettuce and three types of mustard greens. The mustards are very mild salad types. The frilly one is called gold frill, the long thin rounded one is mibuna and the serrated leafed one is mizuna. The larger of the two lettuces is flashy lightning which was grown in the new hoop house, and there's a little cosmo savoy lettuce that was seeded outside very early. Next week we should have more of these greens, and maybe a new itm or two. Oh, I almost forgot to mention the kale and collard raab which is very sweet and can be eaten raw, or even better, lightly cooked.
