Week 4

Wow, week 4. It’s still early in the season and things are starting to ramp up a little. The peas are starting to come on this week, so we hope to have snow peas next week. We’re going big on the salad mix this week because the beds are overflowing with delectable greens. Of course, there’s more of the spinach as well. Here are a few recipes to help you all keep it ‘fresh’ this week with your veggie shares.
