This week we are welcoming the reprisal of the Miyashige daikon! This daikon radish originating from Japan, regularly grows longer than 1.5 feet and can weigh up to 6 pounds. The first few of our gargantuan beauties are easily a foot long and at least 2 pounds! When matched with cabbage, another item in the share this week, these daikons are excellent in kimichi or other fermented foods. The other event we are welcoming this week is the finale of seeding for the season. While we still have new seedlings in the greenhouse that are waiting to be planted, we have come to that time when we can set our seeding trays to the side.
Don’t forget that we will be closed on Sunday, March 31 for the Easter holiday. CSA members that normally pick up on Sunday should pick up on Saturday the 30th from 12:00-4:00 instead.
Also, our 21st Annual PestoFesto event will be on Saturday, April 27 this year and tickets are on sale now. Tickets are $20 in advance or $25 at the door (kids under 12 years get in free). Go to our PestoFesto event page to purchase them online through PayPal, or pay cash or check at the farm. We hope you’ll join us for this wonderful end of season community celebration!
