   Asparagus season has started. We began picking on Saturday, April 11. We should be picking each day until mid May. We hand snap each spear to ensure there is no woody end, thus our asparagus is 100% edible.
   When we have enough production, we'll be supplying local stores with our asparagus. Look for our signs pointing out Mill Creek Farm asparagus (we also use brown colored rubber bands on ours).
   Strawberries are blooming now so that means we'll begin picking sometime in mid May. It's hard to determine specific times at this point, it just depends upon temperatures. And this year has certainly been a roller coaster of extremes.
    The tomatoes are all planted in the high tunnels, so is the head lettuce and romaine.
    Onions, kale, cabbage, broccoli and cauliflower are all transplanted. We've started transplants of cucumber, zucchini, cantaloupe and watermelon.
    The first sweet corn emerged on April 18. We are patiently waiting for warmer temperatures to plant the next patch. Warmer soils are needed for the green beans as well.
     We have pickled asparagus available. We also have asparagus "poppers" and asparagus guacamole available. The poppers are a little more spicy than the pickled asparagus. Kathy Keylor (Kathy's Kitchen) prepares them from our produce. She's also made for us strawberry, strawberry/rhubarb and blackberry jam (from our produce).
