THE FARM STAND
Harvest has dominated our time this week as we spent full mornings on our usual Tuesday and Friday harvests as well as some time spent yesterday pulling garlic! Planted back in the first week of December, it's finally time to get the garlic out of the fields and hang it up to cure for a few more weeks. We had a really successful crop this year and I can't wait for it to make its reappearance in the Farm Boxes and at the Farm Stand!
We also harvested our first potatoes of the season this week, and the first of our latest easter egg radish planting. It's been a beautiful bounty of veggies (and fruit!) all week, and we've been making the most of it, including inaugurating our cob oven with a staff/intern pizza party. We've got more summer crops going in the ground this week and next, and we'll start to see harvests from our first plantings of sweet corn, tomatoes, and melons in a couple weeks. Even with our spring delays in the planting schedule, I'm feeling great about the crop plan this season; we've really hit our stride in terms of timing and variety, and I'm looking forward to continuing that trend throughout the season.
