2018 Harvest 4

CSA 4 2.jpg

Howdy folks and welcome to week 4 of your Tumbleweed Farm haul. We hope you enjoyed last week's veggies and are clearing room in the fridge for more spring treats. I hope you all aren't sick of bok choy yet (I swear it'll slow down soon) because this week it's looking big and beautiful. As always, we're sharing plenty of recipe ideas if you find yourself struggling with some of the harvest. We're excited that kohlrabi is making its seasonal debut along with the purple turnips. The garlic scapes are looking great this week and so are the heads of romaine lettuce (which we love slicing in half and throwing on the grill!). It's a bountiful box this week and we hope you enjoy it!

The main news from the field is that we finally got some rain!!!!! It felt so damn good to stand out in the pouring rain and get soaked. The plants are happy which makes us farmers even happier. The sugar snap and snow peas are growing quickly and zucchini blossoms are popping up in the first squash planting. The potatoes are growing by the day and the corn in the upper field is almost knee high (though I'm only 5'1 so it's probably only calf high on Taylor) Regardless, we're pretty excited to see how healthy and happy it's looking!

Alrighty folks, we hope you enjoy the harvest this week. The temps are creeping up so hopefully you'll find yourself firing up the grill. And you can grill any and all of the veggies (grilled spinach tastes like a kale chip and is really good!)

Cheers from Tumbleweed
