Winter Week 3 from Valley Flora!

  • Goldrush Apples - our favorite winter apple! Sweet, tart, crunchy and a great keeper in the fridge!
  • Mixed Winter Greens 
  • Bunched Asian Greens
  • Pea Shoots
  • Cauliflower - the earliest maturing variety in our overwintered cauliflower line-up
  • Yellow Potatoes
  • Leeks
  • Kale Raab - the first harvest of the spring raab from our lacinato varieties
  • Daikon Radish
  • Celery Hearts
  • Autumn Frost Winter Squash

Lots of leafy things this week: Adolescent greens in a bag, grown-up greens in a bunch, leafy raab from our lacinato kale, the last of the overwintered celery, and a generous pile of pea shoots from the greenhouse! We often hear from our winter members that greens are the thing they crave most this time of year, and we know the feeling! Can't get enough of 'em! We were also delighted to harvest the first of our winter cauliflower this week, a remarkable variety called Medaillion that makes lovely heads at a time when you least expect it. Many thanks to Osborne Seed for carrying this variety, and many of the other varieties that we rely on through the winter months (radicchio, purple sprouting broccoli, cabbages, and more).

Have a great week, and Happy Valentine's day to all (how 'bout slicing up those pretty daikons, cutting them into little hearts, and serving them atop a bed of baby pea shoots with some homemade dressing?!). Fancy!
