The spinach is beautiful this week! Spinach is a tricky crop to grow so we're really happy to have such a beautiful bunch for the shares this week. There's also a head of emerald oak lettuce, a couple of french breakfast radishes, and a stalk or two of the beginnings of our broccoli raab harvests. The raab is a little like a mustard, I like these quickly sauteed with a bit of olive oil and coarse salt and used as an accent on pasta or soup or any other dish.
We're seeing our first crop loss due to slugs. They've decimated a planting of fennel, but fortunately I think we'll still have enough. Other than that things are looking really beautiful now that we're getting a little more sun and warmth. I'll post a few more photos soon.
