Planting the Seeds for CSA 2018

Little Moon Farm CSA for families and salad lovers is scheduled to begin this June. Our bountiful shares will include lots of salad greens each week, as well as a good assortment of other vegetables, herbs, fruits, and an optional weekly bouquet of farm flowers. It all starts in the greenhouse, and we are so fortunate to have the use of the former COPIA greenhouse which now lives at the beloved Connolly Ranch. This amazing greenhouse is about as large as my actual house and has an automated irrigation and cooling system. It's so fun watching the seedlings sprout and grow. The fastest growing seedling yet is pictured below. Purple Napa Cabbage. Napa Cabbage will only show up in our CSA shares on rare occasion as its not too popular in Californian cuisine. However, there are some fun salads that can be made with Napa Cabbage. Additionally, I've become a regular maker and eater of kimchi, and can't wait for this Purple Napa Cabbage to mature, so I can make my first batch ever of purple kimchi. I'm planning to build the CSA around popular favorites like lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers and strawberries, and include these more unusual varieties only on an occasional basis to keep things interesting and educational. I'd love to hear some ideas from you! Comment below to let me know what vegetables you prefer to eat on a weekly basis, and which ones show up only on a rare occasion.
