This week, Katie from Path Valley Farms says "EVERYONE WINS WITH RAMPS THIS WEEK!" and "It's cold and wet here in Pennsylvania. We hope that spring onions and ramps will bring a touch of cozy glee. Spring has not sprung up here, yet! We continue to hope for some sunshine and heat to stir the asparagus out of the ground. Hopefully, it will not be a long wait."

Here's the lineup for Saturday 5/2 delivery!

SMALL BAG

  • 1 bunch of foraged ramps: garlicky, springtime super premium foraged specialty! no matter what's happening in the world, every spring, ramps spring from the earth!

  • 1/2 lb mix greens: ever changing mix of mizuna, tatsoi, red/green kale, red/green mustard, scarlet frills, beet greens, and some sylvetta.

  • small bag of pea shoots -or- microgreens: crown your rice, egg, and kimchi with some frilly fancy greens! approximately 2 ounces.

  • 1 lb fingerling potatoes: toss roasted potatoes with olive oil and diced ramps for the world's springiest dish. as always, don't forget the salt!

  • pint of small tomatoes: these mixed tomatoes are the best greenhouse grown tomatoes we've ever tasted.

MEDIUM BOX

  • 1 bunch of foraged ramps: garlicky, springtime super premium foraged specialty! no matter what's happening in the world, every spring, ramps spring from the earth!
  • small bag of pea shoots -or- microgreens: IT'S SPRING :D approximately 2 ounces.
  • 3/4 lb mix greens: ever changing mix of mizuna, tatsoi, red/green kale, red/green mustard, scarlet frills, beet greens, and some sylvetta.
  • 2 lbs sunchokes: what the heck are sunchokes?! we wrote a blog post about sunchokes AKA Jerusalem Artichokes for the curious. 
  • a red tomato: why just one tomato?! in the greenhouse, the tomato plants are slowly starting to produce. as the days get longer, the plants will grow quicker and there will be more tomatoes!
  • a bunch of radishes: ready for your salad or a simple snack with a creamy dip (hummus, butter, oh! the options...)
  • a bunch of spring onions: red or white onion variety!
  • a bunch of spring garlic: so many alliums, what about making an allium omelette or get creative and make scallion pancakes, sub spring onions/garlic/ramps for scallions.

Happy Family Box

apologies, we had previously included spring radishes in this listing! that was our mistake. the photo should be accurate, but add in potatoes!
