Beth Whiting from Maple Wind Farm


Hi there,

Happy Monday. What a weekend, right? While we can't wait to jump back into sunshine, we also can't forget the importance of these rainy spring days in creating the lush landscape that's on the horizon. Have the crocuses in your neighborhood bloomed yet? A whole swath of them just burst open down at the Food Hub and they are welcome splash of color on this gray day. 

We're rounding out the rainbow with our baskets this week. The bright orange of sweet potatoes and carrots, the deep red of onions and chiogga beets, and the bold greens of pea shoots and cucumbers are coming your way, and they taste even better than they look! If you're wondering what to do with all of these beautiful veggies, scroll on down to the bottom of this newsletter to find recipe recommendations. Enjoy!
