rencontres internationales de la recherche 2012 First and foremost, a big thank you to the intrepid volunteers who came to our first Weeding and Wine Party on Tuesday! We tackled the allium (onion, leek, shallot) section in the top right corner of the farm field and Beth treated us to a picnic of pulled Carmen Ranch beef on a brioche bun, BYG salad mix salad with balsamic vinagrette, pluot crisp with vanilla ice cream, and a dry red wine as the sun set. Our second Weeding and Wine Party is next Tuesday from 5-7 pm, and we hope to see more of your smiling faces there!

We were excited to harvest the first peas of the season for you this week, as well as humongous and gorgeous heads of romaine. It’s a perfect weekend for a barbeque and Caesar salad! There are also our first garlic scapes of the season for our large shares, and a taste of early broccoli for the half shares. What treats! For those who have not been introduced, check out our blog post from last year to learn more about the garlic scapes:

Our featured items this week are snow and sugar snap peas. Peas are such a delicious early summer treat, it’s hard for us to pick them for you without snacking them all away! We grow peas along the sides of our greenhouses, trellising them up the sides. Snow peas, which the half shares received this week (we’ll try to switch it up next week!) are harvested when the pod is fairly flat, and are excellent for stir frying. Snap peas, which the large shares received, are harvested with the pod is plump, and perfect for eating raw in salads. The snow peas in particular have taken off in Big Bob this year, with some plants approaching seven feet tall. If you can resist eating your peas straight out of the bin, here’s a Korean BBQ-inspired recipe where their crunch would fit right in!
