Planting and Waiting
Another big planting week in the books! This week we planted our first successions of tomatoes, peppers, summer squash, and sweet corn. We also planted cucumbers, green beans, and cantaloupe in the high tunnels. Phew! Exciting, tasty stuff.
We are coming to the end of our "winter" season CSA! We wanted to let you know that you'll be able to order your share for this week and next (pick up on 5/16 and 5/23,) and then we'll take a one week break. Summer CSA pick ups begin on June 6th. So just to be clear, that means no CSA pick up on 5/30. We had hoped to be able to go non-stop, but with the unfavorable conditions this spring, lots of our late spring crops are just taking longer to size up than we'd planned.
What We're Eating
We love grilling, and we love asparagus, so, we eat a lot of grilled asparagus! So simple it doesn't even need a recipe - just make sure you coat your spears in plenty of olive oil, salt and pepper. Grill them for 3-4 minutes, giving them a few turns (we like our's "al dente" still."
