Hidden Treasures

So many good things...asparagus, radishes, green onions, zucchini, lettuce, Chinese cabbage, and scapes.

Strawberry season has come to an abrupt halt.  Sorry to say there will be no more this year. The rain ruined what was left.  It is so sad to see them rotting in the field.  The vegetable that are direct seed (seeds are sown directly into the soil in rows), haven't done well in all of this rain.  Weeds are doing extremely well.  That is usually how it goes.  It takes a lot of man hours to get the weeds under control.  All in all things are looking good for Cedarmore.  And we should still continue to see great vegetables in the boxes.

Second Box Is AMAZING

I wish we could all go experience the sounds, colors and smells of Cedarmore in the spring!  Everything is looking really good.  The sugar snap peas are blooming and the strawberries are getting more red bu the day.  Keep your fingers crossed that the weather stays nice and sunny.  A little rain is good but what they are predicting in the next few days might be more than they need.

John and Anna are keeping busy weeding, transplanting, picking, cleaning veggies and packing them into boxes.  Always something to be done!

Swiss chard, kale, radishes, onions and some surprises!

Well...This Snuck Right Up On Me

I just happened to be out in the yard when Rue drove up.  I was glad to see him but surprised that today was the first day of the Spring Share of the CSA.  I was so excited I forgot to take a picture of the veggies inside the box.

And my special canned good...red raspberry jam!  YUM

I promise that next week I will be ready!
