Howdy List – March 16 – Coming Soon: Asparagus

Homemade Healthy Baked Asparagus with Salt and Pepper

Howdy Horse & Buggy Folks,

Spring is right around the corner, and green shoots and blossoms are making their first appearances. Since asparagus is one of the first vegetables to leap up in springtime, we are 99% sure we will have asparagus next week.

As for this week, we have some local greens coming your way – lettuce and microgreens will be in the produce boxes. PLEASE leave out a cooler for our Local Food Buddies to transfer your produce items into as it looks like it may be very cold on Thursday and the lettuce and microgreens will freeze if left out in the cold.

Here’s to good food, good health, good lives, and good folks to share them with!!!

▪ Brett, Catherine, Mary, Nutmeg the Circus Dog, the Eberlys, and all the farmers
