This week we are taking another shot at Whipstone’s asparagus. The plants have rebounded and there should be enough for all of us. If for some reason the asparagus doesn’t work out this week, you will receive garlic from Willowbrook Farm and arugula from Whipstone Farm in its place. Let’s cross our fingers! Your baskets will also include fennel this week, which hasn’t made it into our shares for the last several years. Fennel is delicious but can be a bit tricky to figure out how to use, so check out the recipe below for an idea. It seems strange to be getting early Spring crops like asparagus and fennel in June, but it’s a strange year so we’ll take it!
Our flower share distribution begin next Wednesday, June 12th, so this is the last week that you can sign up for a flower share. We are so incredibly lucky to have access to local, organically grown flowers from Whipstone Farm. I never thought I would be able to enjoy local flowers here in Arizona, but these are truly the best. If you would like to add a flower share to your weekly pickup please contact Hilary at email@example.com I will be out of town and unreachable this week.
Have a glorious week!

Looking forward to another batch of Bob’s onions!
In my opinion, no other salad mix compares to the ones we get from Willowbrook and Whipstone.
