New Vegetables

The shares are shifting a bit as we near the end of spring. Today's share has the first carrot thinnings, a sweet onion, and another head of Pirat butter lettuce. The onion is a Siskiyou Sweet variety and we've harvested it young, with the flower stalk. All parts are edible raw or cooked, but the flower stalk is best cooked.

The fields are incredibly wet right now but we did manage to get all of the tomatoes planted, finally. Below is a photo of the last of six rows we planted. This one is Moscovich. We'll have four others this year as well.

  1. Josh, Where did you get the pirat seed? That's not vey common. I grow her on Orcas from seed we've been saving. excellent lettuce. Secondly, Is staking your toms your prefeered method? Looking for an easy system for my outdoor toms.

    Keep well and hope things dry out soon. It's raining agin here.
