For more information about your weekly veggies, you can find storage and usage tips on the Vegetable Directory. This can be found from the menu on the website or the link above. We also have Pinterest boards for all veggies.
We hope that you had a great holiday and caught up on your veggies. Just like that – BOOM – Summer is here. Summer crops are coming on fast. We have had a tremendous amount of rain over the past week. It has put some delays on our week of transplanting but we did manage to get a lot accomplished.
