We have been enjoying the mild spring conditions over the past 10 days. It seems like a real true Spring around here, with a mix of sun and rain, everything bursting from the seams with green growth, and cool nights. In our five years here, Spring has often seemed somewhat flighty in May, appearing for a few days and then disappearing quickly. But this year, May has been absolutely temperate and our spring crops have been reveling in the respite before the onslaught of heat and humidity sets in with the Summer season. We are simultaneously excited to see our first Summer crops creeping in and with this upcoming week they will be happy, so happy, as they need warmer days to really grow. Summer Squash is always our first warm weather crop to arrive and we are happy to say that this coming week they will be in full effect. Now to get enough time to keep planting more Summer crops, that is always a challenge.
This weeks share is full of delicious options. We have recipes for many salads, as it is going to be a warm week and what a great way to highlight all these superb treats. Especially the peas, it is a good Spring when we are able to offer these to our shares. Please enjoy….Autumn and Brian
