Here is the list…..

galia melon (honeydew/cantaloupe cross)
broccoli shoots
big broccoli heads
bag of lettuce mix
bunch of kale
small, young white potatoes
naval oranges
limes
butternut squash
head of cauliflower
tangerines
oro blanco grapefruit
passion fruit  “Careful…very tart”

We got these Galia melons from a member of the San Diego backyard fruit exchange. We did not believe it at first, when she said she had so many melons in the middle of January.  But, apparently, freak melons in January is one of the benefits of growing 6 blocks from the beach. I got to sample one, It was ok. Compared to our amazing melons this summer. But considering it is the middle of January?, it’s heaven. I would just wait as long as possible for it to get really ripe, because it did not seem super sweet.

Last year, I saw a woman trade her whole Suzies Farm CSA box for a live chicken! Yeah. It is real. Real people trading real stuff for what they want.

We will start putting these beauties in the box next week. I forget the seed name. But they are the pointy head type of cabbage.

Also, we just planted a boatload of strawberries. June bearers and everbearers. So cross your fingers and hold a point. I want lot’s of berries in my box this spring!!
