Week of March 21st

Please be cautious if you are picking up at the farm when it’s raining (or has recently rained). The farm becomes one big mud puddle.

Tip of the week: Remove the tops from your carrots and radishes when you receive them. The tops actually suck the water out of the vegetables and will leave them limp. That goes for the extra leaves on the cauliflower as well as beet tops.
