Strawberries are here! It is a short season for the strawberries but we are going to be include them for the next couple of weeks. They are an heirloom variety of strawberries which means they are incredibly tasty but very parishable so try to eat them quickly. Most people have no problem doing that. They are pesticide-free,so feel free to eat them right out of the container. The leeks are overwintered and have great flavor, but we would recommend giving them a good cooking, either by sauteeing them or using them in a soup, like the recipe on our blog, because their centers are a bit firm. Enjoy the beautiful weather this weekend, and thank you for supporting our farm!
