Meet this week's vegetables

  • Crisphead lettuce
  • Carrots
  • Broccoli
  • Eggplant
  • Green and yellow zucchini
  • Rainbow chard & red Russian kale
  • Bell pepper and a Hungarian yellow hot wax pepper — A mild hot pepper. 
  • Sierra Blanca sweet onion 
  • Fresh Russian red garlic  — This is garlic that hasn't been dried yet. Keep fresh garlic in a dry place, not the refrigerator.
  • A sampling of Sun Gold cherry tomatoes  —  They're just starting to come in, and although we don't have a lot yet, I consider the official start of summer to be when the Sun Golds start to ripen.
