Has this crazy weather got you uncertain about whether you need a t-shirt or a coat to leave the house lately? The back and forth temperatures and heavy rain has been tough on our farmers, as well. With spring just around the corner, it’s time for them to begin springtime plantings, but when the fields are flooded with rain day after day, it’s tough to get those delicate spring veggies into the ground.
Because we’re hitting that between-seasons period and because of the heavy rains we’ve been seeing, we will probably have some interesting transitional baskets over the next few weeks or maybe even the next month. The transition between seasons always means seeing a mix of veggies from the season before and the one that’s upcoming, so we have a lot of variety to look forward to!

We are working hard around here to launch a site redesign, and last week I got to head down to VH HQ and snap a class photo with some of the vegetable husband family! We had a great time posing with vegetables. Even the glum chum in the bottom right corner had some tangerines, but he was a little too shy to jump around with them.
It’s been kind of an up and down winter here. One day, it’s shorts weather, and the next evening we have a freeze! You’ve probably seen your share of confused daffodils who think maybe spring has come early, but when it comes to veggies, our haul is pure winter goodness! Check out what’s in this week’s baskets and a few cooking ideas after the jump! Continue reading
