CSA Harvest News April 7th 2015

News from the Farm:   Is anyone else as excited as I am that we have carrotsNLP-100409-1991 this week? It’s funny how a gap in the supply – even a short one – can turn an otherwise normal vegetable into something valuable. We’ve had a great couple of weeks here on the farm. Spring weather is keeping us constantly guessing and a bit in awe – glorious sunshine, hail, thunderstorms, and even a frost on Friday night. If in your shares you find fringed spinach and kale with some discoloration, you’re seeing the results of this weather on our crops. We assure you that they’re still edible and even delicious. Curtis and some of you lovely volunteers had a productive workday on Saturday – they weeded, harvested, and cleaned up some of our spinach
