Bibb Lettuce
Russian Kale
Spring Carrots
Napa Cabbage
Cucumbers (Suyo Long & Marketmore)

Another busy week and its looking to get busier and hotter as we approach the solstice. Already we are looking towards filling up the greenhouse with Fall and Winter crops, while just beginning to get into the Summer crops and holding onto our Spring crops for awhile longer. Even though we had an extraordinarily rainy week a little while back, it has actually been quite dry, so certain crops like our potatoes and early beans are slow growing at this point. We are inundated with cucumbers and squash though and the broccoli is still pumping strong. Many of the items in this week’s share will be in small volume, as the heat has really hit some crops back. This will be the last of the kale, radishes, and broccoli until September. One of my favorite ways to use Napa cabbage is to make into a quick slaw style salad, with whatever is around and dressed with a touch of sesame oil and soy, sweetened rice vinegar, muddled garlic, ginger, and salt and a squeeze of lime. Have herbs through it in, grate carrots and radishes, chop up broccoli into small pieces stem and all. It is delicious and fresh. Enjoy the share……Autumn & Brian
