harvest days

Spring has truly sprung! In the last two weeks, we started harvesting the first new crops of the season. Deliciously tender and sweet asparagus! Juicy spinach! Definitely a welcome change to all of that kale we have been eating. During last Friday’s harvest I picked about 7 pounds of spinach. It is sort of crazy to think that I touched every single leaf of spinach that was sold.

On the agenda for this week: finish planting thousands(!) of onion starts and putting the plastic on the new hoophouse. The weather forecast is surprisingly wonderful so it should be a great week. Coming up: rhubarb cinnamon rolls.
