Spring Share #3 of 5- 5/10+5/12: Leafing Out

by Erin and Steve on 05/07/22

*Reminder: the Spring Share is not the Summer Share*
It's gonna be warm this week, folks. And it's gonna start feeling like Summer is here. But the first day of Summer this year is officially June 21st! What does all this mean? It means that even though it is warm is doesn't mean that all warm-weather-loving vegetables will miraculously be available. Instead, it means we should enjoy the warming days of Spring and the seasonally available produce our wonderful corner of the world provides! The cherry trees are blooming and the apple trees are making flower buds, the dandelions are out so that means it's time to plant potatoes. The greenhouses are bursting with plants ready for the fields, but can't go outside until the last threat of frost has passed. Hopefully that means this week! The trees are leafing out just in time to provide shade on the warmer days. So though it may feel like you're bursting at the seams, it's cause I think we are all leafing out right now ;)
The Spring Share continues to march along. We are hoping the asparagus kicks it into high gear in this warm weather and we'll have some by the 4th week. For this week, though, we will have: scallions, green garlic, lettuce, spinach, and bunched greens!
