Sunshine & Asparagus!
No more rain on the horizon, only sunshine moving forward! Feels like is was such a long Winter. Happy spring is finally here.
Local Asparagus is now in full swing! Coming in hot from Durst Farms in Esparto, CA. 11# cases of large size is looking absolutely beautiful and ready to hit all your spring menus.
We are in the middle of a transition from Arizona back to Salinas, so expect a rocky few weeks for leaf lettuces, broccoli, cauliflower and green onions.
