- Basil: We hope you enjoy the first taste of basil in your share this week. This first “pinch” allows us to get to the plants before they set flower, encouraging abundant leaf growth so we can enjoy even more of their delicious aroma and flavor in several more weeks.
- Broccoli: Abundant once again this week; enjoy it while it’s here as the season for broccoli is brief yet prolific.
- Collard Greens: Enjoy the last early season round of collards in your share this week.
- Napa Cabbage: Also known as Chinese Cabbage, this crop is delicious used raw, lightly sauteed or in a batch of Kimchi.
