• Brae Farm Weekly Notes for the Kitchen – October 20, 2023

    Hi everyone,


    The cima di rapa is forming florets so it would great to do a first harvest on Tuesday. I expect the crop to have a about a 3-week harvest window.


    I’ve added golden and chiogga beetroot to the list, as well as large-leaf shungiku, pink daikon, garlic scapes, Tokyo bekana, agretti, and strawberries.


    The strawberries are looking really good, but are still in limited quantities.


    We harvested the Tokyo turnips hard this week, so we’ll be short until the next succession is ready.


    Our final planting of bok choi is huge and needs to be harvested asap.


    We have some nice head lettuces – green butterheads and little gems – that we could send to the kitchen whole if you would like them. Otherwise, I’ll use them up in the supper plate salad mix.


    Thanks! Jo
