Our first trip to the farm of the year was a few days ago, on Tuesday (5/17). We got 2 quarts of strawberries - they are the Chandler variety, which is what they use in California, so they are BIG strawberries like you would see in the grocery store. We were pleasantly surprised to find some other things at the farm stand, and we went home with a full bag of arugula (there are no scales in the field so it wasn't determined by weight) and four bunches of French breakfast radishes. After we left the muddy parking lot of the strawberry fields we stopped by the herbs and got chives with purple flowers, flat-leaf chives, some mint, oregano, and "fool's thyme" which is yet to be identified.
I ate the strawberries as a snack already, and my mom took the radishes and most of the herbs. I've got the arugula and some chives to use up. This year I don't want to wait to post what we got, and I don't want to do a day-by-day list of how we use things. I'm going to keep it less structured and just write what I think will be helpful for next year. And hopefully I'll have some nice photos to share as well!
