The start of the CSA is just around the corner. It's looking as if June 1-4 will be the first week for pickup if the weather continues as it has with slightly warmer temps.
The strawberries have been shown in previous postings and the raspberries are also in full bloom. Now I have to believe that 5 rows of raspberries is going to be enough for all of us. The deal is this: if we have a bounty of raspberries then we'll pick the first container for you on certain weeks but if you ever want more then you go up and pick more for yourself. I won't fence off this area so you'll be able to find it easily.
On tap for week 1 so far looks like:
loose mixed spring lettuce
loose mustard lettuce mix (has small holes in it from flea beatle)
swiss chard -- it grows like a weed in my garden
pick your own herbs-- tarragon, greek oregano, parsley, sage, thyme, dill, cilantro, mint, basil and a few others that are still growing--- like rosemary
--the maybe list includes
Kale, carrots, radishes(french breakfast), celery, turnips, dill, cilantro, beets, arugula, kohlrabi
--these items are small but always amaze me at how fast they grow. So sometimes I don't know what is going to be the right size until a few days before.
The flea beatles get into anything spicy-- arugula, bok choi, mustard leaves..... so they taste great but they just look funky. Better in the fall when those bugs are gone.
Snap peas are coming along and starting to take off. This is another plant that looks like it will be 5 more weeks but then just takes off and suddenly you have snap peas all over. I think snap peas will be ready second week of June. That is the typical time of year.
