How nice has it been to have the sun back?!! We have been busy in the greenhouse planting transplants for this season-our tomatoes and peppers are up and we have a slew of greens transplants to go out next week in the heated tunnel. We start planting in our un-heated tunnels again at the end of the month. February rather than January always feels like the new year to me; we gain light, temperature and its when I start to get excited about the next season :)


In your bag this week:


Micro Arugula: crisp and peppery, these are great on sandwiches, as a salad or over your morning eggs! Store in your fridge.


Kale: This kale was planted back in september of 2019 and it has served us well. the color turns in the winter months to a beautiful purple that I can't stop taking pictures of. Store in your fridge.


Spinach: Super sweet and crisp. Eat as a salad or sautee. I have been making a breakfast salad lately by just putting a fried egg over the spinach with a little goat cheese and whatever nuts I have-great start to your day! Store in your fridge for up to 3 weeks.


Nasturtiums: these beautiful clover looking greens have a strong wasabi flavor that will bring some surprise to any meal. add to wraps or poke bowls, anything with a 'fatty' flavor pairs well too. Store in your fridge.


Flavor Mix Microgreens: A big bag of our classic Microgreen mix. Eat as a salad with olive oil, salt and pepper or add to a sandwich, your breakfast eggs or pretty much anything else! Store in your fridge.


Cilantro Microgreens: Time to make Tacos! Easy to eat, no chopping needed and a great flavor these add a pop of flavor to anything! Store in your fridge.
