This Weeks Box 4/20/2013

Here is the list
haas avocado
carrots
green onions
first strawberries of the year
bloomsdale spinach and spring green mix with edible flowers
head lettuce “romaine or red leaf”
chard
bok choy or kale “because there was not enough of either”
oranges
satsuma mandarines
fresh oregano bunch
big beets with greens
broccoli sprouts
lemons
I have not checked but I think we were doing strawberries earlier than we did last year.
The cool weather strawberries are certainly a refreshing change from the ones we get in the plastic square at the store. They do not have the knock you off your feet sweetness that they will begin to develop as the season continues. It really takes warmer weather to get those super sweet berries.
