Week 2 Boxes

Roof top Farmer is tired and terse:  But here’s what was in our week 2 box:  two small heads of some combination of  buttercrunch, royal red, or simpson  lettuce; one bag of spinach, and one bag of spring salad mix (composed of swiss chard, kale, arugula, and a variety of baby lettuces).  I’m a kale evangelist.  It’s the best in all its stages, but I especially like the earthy taste of fresh kale mixed into the salad.


Other things are coming along but are not quite ready, including radishes and some green onions.  However, the broccoli has little buds, about the size of a dime.  I think it might be ready in 2-3 weeks.  Until then, more lettuce and other greens.  Next year I need to find a way to increase the variety of the early boxes.  How early can you start carrots?  Peas?  Beets?  We’ll find out.
