For Friday May 20

Posted 5/17/2016 10:54am by Emily Best.

Even though it got quite cold Sunday night, it’s actually been sunny and fairly warm the past few days. Wohoo! Hopefully this weather brings on plant growth. I know we’re all anxiously awaiting the first strawberries. Our growers are all talking about how so many items are “almost ready” but just not there yet, so hopefully we see some new produce soon!

I love this photo from New Morning Farm – the team is transplanting early sweet corn using the Lannen transplanter. It’s a carousel style transplanter, and used on bare ground transplants (not on plastic mulch). I only transplanted on the Lannen a couple times because it made me quite dizzy! But it’s very fast and efficient for the farmers. Can’t wait for sweet corn.  

HIGHLIGHTS:

RHUBARB: Rhubarb gets an unprecedented third-in-a-row appearance on the highlights and here’s why: I started putting some in my morning smoothie (spinach, berries, banana, yogurt, and now rhubarb), and I am LOVING it. It’s adding such a bright and tangy flavor to my breakfast!

SPRING GARLIC: We’ve got bunched and bulk spring garlic in abundance. Great way to perk up any dish!

BASIL: We got a note yesterday from our tomato and basil grower who reported that the tomatoes aren’t as vigorous as in previous years. But the basil is looking (and smelling) great!

ASPARAGUS: After a shaky supply early in the week, it looks like we’re projected to get in nearly 60 cases for Friday deliveries!! It’s now on a 3 case discount price.
