Well, we’ve been a bit bogged down this week with the rain and head colds. While I perfected my farmer blow in the field, Arien kept the veggies germ free washing and packing in the shed! Kale continues to be limited. It’s looking like we’ve lost quite a bit in the field due to winter lows. We may still get some raab from those plants but they’re not looking too enthusiastic about taking part in spring growth! We should be harvesting pac choy next week and the first of the purple sprouting broccoli may be ready then too. It looks like some varieties didn’t make it but others are pushing bright purple florets – we know which ones to try again! Lettuce should follow in 2-3 weeks (all depending on that big glowing globe in the sky). And we always start looking forward to those flowering shoots of cabbage, collards, and kale. Very soon it will be raab on!
At market tomorrow you will be treated with Shannon’s smiling face; I will be at the OSU Small Farms Conference. Please remind her if you have an account and your name.
