It is important to note that the arrival of spring occurred just two days ago. Just as important is to realize that this is the time to plant spring crops, not harvest these crops. While we are well into the season, other springtime crops, like fava beans and English peas, have not started locally. This week we feature a variety of local seasonal greens currently available from several local farms.
