We have rain! There are a lot of farmers overjoyed at this news, and definately some crops. New this week is sugar snap peas and snow peas from the field, greenhouse beets and red currants. Little zucchini the size of my thumb are sending the promise of zucchini for next week! The carrots in the front field are also finger-sized, and I simply cannot wait till they’re ready!
Jenny has a quick note from the farm-
Finally the rain came! We are still busy planting in the fields, and a nice drink of rain is perfect for the new transplants. The cucumbers in the greenhouse are just starting to get to harvest size (next week!) and some of the little green strawberries in the strawberry field are turning to red. I have been checking them almost every day in my excitement.

It’s hard to believe that the (seemingly never ending winter) is finally over-and we now have had enough warmth and sunshine to grow a beautiful array of vegetables to start the summer off right and to keep you recharged (and enjoying food/family/weather).
Here is what you can look forward to in your first box (depending on your area you can expect to see it Wed/Thursday/Friday of this week) and remember if you signed up and find you have too few (or too many) vegetables your able to change your share-just reach out to Jenny and she will accommodate accordingly.

Don’t forget you can use the mint in your water for a refreshing mint water to help with the heat 🙂 Here is a recipe I can’t wait to try from Canadian Living-Garlic-Sauteed Rapini Recipe
