May Forecast + Spring Recipes

May 3, 2023 | Uncategorized

Right now is truly one of the most abundant moments of the year!

Late spring in Texas means we can still enjoy lettuce, broccoli, cauliflower, and radishes, while slowly sliding into all the exciting delicacies of late spring, including potatoes, leeks, storage onions, zucchini, and cucumbers. It will still be another month or so until we’re in the full zenith of tomatoes and peppers, but the next few weeks will be some of the most diverse with lots of new fresh vegetables coming up in your COOP veggie shares.

As always, thank you for supporting your Central Texas Farmers. We hope your meals are as delicious as the season is bountiful!
