Summer Harvest in Full Swing!

Kale The big bunch of curly dark green leaves at the top of the box
Lettuce Romaine this week - dark green leaves with light green ribs - conical upright shape
Arugula The small bunch of light green leaves near the top of the box
Scallion The bunch of slender white-tipped stems near the middle of the box. A little dirty this week due to excess rain during the harvest Wednesday
Cucumber The small light green "pickling-type" cukes near the middle of the box. These are great raw or pickled. First of the season - delicious (more to come!!)
Zucchini A mix of green (Zucchini), yellow (crookneck), and patty pan (yellow and round) all great for cooking in so many good ways!
Fennel The light green small "bulk" with stems attached to the top.
Carrots Fresh dug with their tops still on!
Cabbage Conical, green, "Early Jersey Wakefield" cabbage - Cole Slaw time!!!
