Availability List for Delivery Friday April 1st

Here’s where you’ll find our farmers this time of year: seeding! In this photo, Audrey at Bending Bridge Farm seeds yummy snack peppers. The peppers germinate in the tiny cells in this tray, and later, when they’ve got a few leaves, the peppers will be “potted up” into bigger cells. This is also how many farmers start their tomatoes, too. Farmers use these tiny cell trays because this time of year, you need an additional heat source (like a heat mat) to convince these warm weather plants to germinate, and most farmers only have a heat mat or two, so they need to save space on the mats. Emily’s heading down to Atlanta this afternoon for the National Good Food Network Food Hub Conference, where she’ll be checking out other operations, learning about best practices, and connecting with other food hub managers from around the country. If you’re going to the conference, send her email to connect!

HIGHLIGHTS KALE: All hail kale! Our growers are uncovering their low tunnels out in their fields and discovering lots of hearty RED RUSSIAN kale under the covers. Red Russian is a beautiful, purple/green variety with a sweet kale flavor, especially when it’s been outside all winter! We’ve got this kale (plus green and lacinato) in baby and tender young sizes. BTW: Did you know that green kale is also known as CURLY kale? And Lacinato is also known as DINO or TUSCAN? No matter what you call it, all hail kale!

SPRING ARRIVALS: Scallions, baby turnip greens, wild dandelions, and baby bok choi all make their TRIUMPHIC return to the list. Hurrah!
