The spring season finds us taking advantage of last fall’s bountiful harvest and looking forward to the promise of a new season. During this time of year, we have fresh salad greens and shoots available. We store hearty crops like beets, carrots, potatoes, rutabagas, cabbage, onions, and other treats from the root cellar. We take time during each summer harvest to preserve the summer goodness, and freeze crops like spinach, squash puree, sweet red peppers, broccoli, and cauliflower. With the storage crops mix, the frozen and preserved summer crops, and the weekly salad blend, this share will keep your household well fed.*
Months: March, April, May, early June
Vegetables you can expect: Beets, Cabbage, Carrots, Celeriac, Daikon and Valentine Radish, Parsnips, Potatoes, Rhubarb, Rutabagas, Turnips; Spinach, Mesclun, Cucumber, Shoots, Chard, Pac Choi, Cress, Sorrel; Parsley, Cilantro; Onions, Green Garlic, Black Garlic, Scallions
*Note: The veggies in our frozen items are indeed our own Pete’s Greens organic veggies, but we have decided that the process of certifying our minimally processed veggies as certified organic places too great a burden on our organization. Thus, starting in the 2016/2017 season our frozen veggies are not certified organic (though they still contain our organic veggies).
