A May 13th share.

From left to right: ruby streaks mustards, easter egg radish, red round turnip, habitat's hens' eggs, sunday mix, oregano sprigs, and assorted thyme.

We think it was the quick snap into summer about a week ago that has caused most of our broccoli family crops to send up flower stalks (called "bolting").  That's why we decided to pull the Red Round Turnips and include their greens in this week's shares, even though the roots were too small to use yet.  The resulting vegetable is like a gourmet treat: a whole plant, comprised of tender leaves with the occasional floret.  The red of the roots shows in the bright pink stems.  Enjoy!
