In Your Share (Jan 31st edition)

Sunshine has been fabulous! Pulled the furrows so we’ll be planting peas & favas very soon. This week your share may include…

  • Beets: The variety is Winterkeeper (aka Lutz) and the roots are looking good.
  • Carrots: They’ve been through freezes and floods so they may look a little worse for wear. But they taste AMAZING and that’s what counts! The variety is Bolero.
  • Brussel Sprouts: This has been a great season for sprouts! The variety is Genius this week which has nice tight sweet sprouts.
  • Collard Greens: Interesting to see the marked difference in the growth habit of the three different varieties we grow – Champion, Bulldog & Flash. We don’t usually pick Champion much this time of year because the plants are lower to the ground and tend to have more mud splash & slugs on the leaves. However the Champion leaves are nice on the fall and bolt later in the spring than the other two varieties extending our season for succulent sprouting¬†flower stalks aka raab.
  • Kale: The varieties this week are mostly Winterbor. It makes great kale chips!
  • Kohlrabi: It made it through the Big Freeze and they are soooooo sweet!
  • Onions: Little yellow onions this week are good for roasting. Copra is the variety.
  • Potatoes: Yukon Gold this week.
  • Winter Squash: An assortment to choose from.

Coming soon… Sprouting Broccoli & Leeks!
