Asparagus - One of our early-season crops
and is in very limited quantities
Beets - Purple, Red, White, and Golden. Most people are familiar with the standard purple beets but there are sweeter flavored heirloom varieties like "Chioggia", a red beet with white bulls eye stripes inside and Golden beet, wonderful oven roasted in foil.
A crop that we have been expanding production of every year for five years now. Yes, we have plain old orange carrots, but in the last couple of years we have added yellow, white, peach, red and purple. Yes, they all taste like carrots but have subtle differences and sweetness levels, and they add wonderful colors to that old orange standby.
Snap Beans - We have started to increase the unusual types we raise and reduce the standard types. Green and yellow beans are okay, but for fresh eating , French Filet beans, extra slender and sweet are hard to beat. The nutty flavor and extra meaty texture of Italian Romano bean. The heirloom Dragons Tongue a yellow Romano with purple stripes, sauteed with garlic, shallots, and onions are fantastic eating.
