Abundant Greens + Strawberries!

Posted on June 24th, 2022 by Danielle Allen

The weather has been ideal for greens these past few weeks- warm days, cool nights, just enough rain but not too much. So we have an abundance of gorgeous greens of all kinds right now. Stock up while they're at their best!

Plus it's peak strawberry season in the Upper Valley, so we've sourced some beautiful berries from Four Corners Farm. Scroll down to add them to your box.

We're preparing for the heat wave this weekend, uncovering greens and running the irrigation to give everything a good drink before the high temperatures hit. As we wind down asparagus harvest we're shifting over to zucchini and yellow squash. Both of these crops have an intensive harvest schedule, they need to be cut every other day. We time our plantings so they don't overlap too much and the workload is more manageable.
