Spring - Week 1

Hello Everyone -
Well, the snow returned but it's still green in the hoops - welcome to our first week of spring veggies!
Reminder - today is the first day for the spring session and we will distribute weekly from now on.  Veggies will be in the garage until the weather breaks and we can move outside.  So, please park either on the cement drive or in the area in the horseshoe drive in front of the garage and enter through the laundry room door then enter the garage through the door on the left.  If it warms up, I'll open the main garage door but otherwise please feel free to come in.  If Terra, the dog, is in there, please don't let her outside.  Also, for those that are new - we have a horseshoe drive - please enter from the west and exit to the east and drive slowly in the driveway because we have animals and children that are frequently playing in front.
Today's veggie plan:
  1. Parsnips
  2. Carrots
  3. Onions
  4. Garlic
  5. Napa cabbage - this will be the last of it until fall - the heads are wide this time of year (not like typically sold in the store).  Cabbage heads up when the days begin to shorten so, as the days are now getting longer, the growth pattern is changing.  Chop it all up, wash it and either eat fresh or saute - very tasty.
  6. Baby choi - this is Mei Qing choi which is also tasty.  It's called "baby" but is actually just a mini variety and this is as big as it gets.  Some plants are beginning to bolt (flower).  The flowers are edible and beautiful.
  7. Salad mix - probably a mix of bolting pac choi, mizuna and baby collards
  8. Either arugula or spinach or maybe a little of both
  9. Some rosemary and thyme
  10. Spicy peppers
We hope you enjoy it!  Hope to see you between 3:30 - 6:30.  If you're here between 3:30 - 4:30 and I'm not around, I might be in the hoops seeding.  You can walk over and check it out if you'd like.

  1. Used an onion, some garlic, and spinach+arugula+salad mix in a chard pie on Thursday - yum! Had to laugh once I realized there was no actual chard in the chard pie...
