Pricey Farm Mates,

 Our first week was recent and scrumptious however this week is even higher!  What’s in your bag this week?  Garlic, garlic scapes, squash, (both zucchini, spherical zucchini, or yellow squash), sugar snap peas, Hakurei turnips, and inexperienced butter head lettuce.  The scapes are the tops of the garlic that if allowed would grow to be a flower.  After we take away them from the still-growing garlic crops the garlic bulbs get bigger.  It’s a win-win harvesting them.  They’re so scrumptious and eradicating them helps our garlic get huge!
