Meet this week's vegetables

  • Baby carrots — Our first carrots of the season! They're a little funny looking, but hey, we'd all be funny looking if we were stuck in the ground in early April!
  • Rouge Grenobloise head lettuce
  • Baby beets
  • Spring onions
  • Green garlic — This is garlic that hasn't matured yet, you can use the shank as you would a green onion, but with a mild garlic taste.
  • Collard greens— An underapreciated vegetable, collards are extremely nutritious. They're great in salads, steamed or boiled.
  • Parsley
