The share to be distributed on Thursday, June 26th, will consist of all or most of the following: scallions, garlic scapes, Hakurei turnips, lettuce, Swiss chard, bok choy, and potted parsley. Hakurei turnips are much sweeter and more tender than the Purple Top turnips that come a little later. They can be sliced or cubed and sautéed in olive oil and garlic (or diced garlic scapes) until tender.
Marble-sized hail hit the farm on Tuesday afternoon, doing some damage to the leafy crops, the peas and the first generation of squash fruits, but leaving most other crops unscathed. This week’s lettuces and chard will be tattered, and the first squashes might be delayed, but Ted doesn’t think the storm resulted in much lasting damage.
