Meet this week's vegetables

  • Heirloom leaf lettuce mix
  • Heirloom spicy mesclun mix — Our ‘everything but the kitchen sink’ mix. You'll notice that it's a little spicier this week. The warm weather in the past few days week really heats up those mustard greens!
  • Rouge Grenobloise head lettuce — A french heirloom lettuce that is both heat and cold tolerant, perfect for early spring growing. A beautiful green on the bottom and red on top, with deeply crinkled leaves.
  • Spring onions — Last week was the last of our over-wintered onions, this week we’re starting on our new crop sown this year. We always grow from seed for the best quality and taste.
  • Rainbow Swiss chard — Great steamed, boiled or stir-fried. Even better with a little butter!
  • Pak choi — An Asian vegetable that is perfect for a stir-fry.
  • Dill & parsley. — Throw them in a salad, or great in many dishes.
