(Listed from shortest shelf life to longest shelf life) Strawberries: These will be in your box relentlessly now. Eat right away as we pick them ripe and they will not last long. The store bought stuff has been picked way under ripe so that it can survive the journey to the distribution depot then to the store and wait in back stock until shelf space is available. Lettuce: We have been able to grow lettuce further into the summer as our soil improves. We do use a lot of water on this crop Store in a plastic bag in the fridge. Eureka Lemons: This versatile fruit adds a great touch to winter greens and salads. These are from Bill Crepps at Everything Under The Sun. They have not been washed, brushed or waxed. Bill is not certified organic. He is not good with paperwork or the bureaucracy of organic certification. He farms just the same as before when he was certified organic. Chard: These plants are new this spring, grown in a greenhouse and transplanted into the field. Any chard planted last Fall will now be thinking very seriously about flowering and producing its own seed. We have the seed for this crop planted after the shortest day so that it does not get the stimulus to flower. We hopefully can keep on picking through the summer. Store in a plastic bag in the crisper. Red Russian Kale: This is grown just like the chard. Store in a plastic bag in the crisper. Scallions: A yellow onion variety this bunch has three or four onions in it. Please use the greens in soups or stir fry. Store in the fridge. Green Cabbage: Fast growing and delicious Store in the crisper. Green Garlic: It is such a delight to have this in our harvest shares. My favorite way to enjoy is to stir fry the chopped garlic in a skillet with some olive oil. Then stir in eggs for a delicious green garlic scrambled eggs. Store in the crisper. Carrots: These come from Los Pablos at Terra Firma Farm in Winters. We have more of our own bunches of carrots for next week or the week after. Store in the crisper Mint: We test dug some potatoes on Monday to see if we could put them in your box. The yield was too low so we decided to wait a week. Mint is a great herb which we cannot seem to have enough of on the farm. Store with its stem in a glass of water just like fresh flowers.
