Availability List For Friday April 14th
What a beautiful morning here at the co-op! Our windows are open wide; the sun is shining; the birds are chirping. Now THIS is what a spring morning feels like. It seems like our list is growing with spring items by the day. Scallions, spring onions, baby bok choi, young Napa cabbage! Don’t move too quickly into all things spring quite yet though, as we are getting another shipment of potatoes in from Maine. We will have gold, white, and red potatoes available.
Note: We are still experiencing a shortage of pea shoots. Our grower is having a tough go with them right now. We will again have a very limited number of cases of these avaialble for Friday. Send good vibes over to Hares Valley in hopes we can get those pea shoots going again!
BABY ARUGULA: Looking to spice up your salad? Baby arugula might be the perfect, peppery addition you’ve been searching for. I’m a sucker for a good arugula and goat cheese salad. I love the combination of spicy, tangy flavors.
BOK CHOI: Back when I was an apprentice at New Morning Farm, bok choi was one of the crops I managed, and it definitely still holds a special place in my heart. Though bok choi can be a bit tricky to grow as many pests love it as much as we do, I always loved the early morning harvests of these crisp, perky brassicas. For Friday, we will have baby and young bok choi to offer.
YOUNG NAPA CABBAGE: Dan Landis of Landisdale Farm is unexpectedly supplying us with young napa cabbage. What a nice surprise! My personal favorite use of Napa cabbage? Well, it’s a hard contest between kimchi and cabbage rolls. Yum, yum!
SPRING ONIONS: I know many of you have been hoping for more spring onions, and they are here! Both Greenbriar Produce and Chicano Sol are offering white scallions this week.
