Welcoming Radishes and First of Strawberries
By Derek McGeehan
Strawberries have begun ripening thanks to last week's mini heat wave. With the cooler and wetter weather they'll ripen less quickly, which normally means the season lasts longer. Right now there's only enough for us to pick for you; eventually they'll be opened up for u-pick. Gabe and Abigail sit on an attractive dry-stack stone miniwall made by assistant farmer Pat.
Harvest #2 (Week B) should include radishes, strawberries, kale, chard, arugula, bok choy, broccoli raab, mizuna, spinach, lettuce, green garlic, and perennial herbs. Some items may be a choice. U-pick should include perennial herbs.
Roots and greens of radishes are edible raw or cooked. To subdue the radish spiciness try cutting the root in half and pan frying for a few minutes in fat/oil and salt. Greens can be eaten is salads, smoothies, or cooked any which way.
