Organic produce update

First organic greens of the year out of Hudson Valley from Hepworth Farms. This week baby braising greens and baby mustard. Next week baby arugula. All limited.

Chives and occasionally sorrel are coming from Finger Lakes Organic Growers Cooperative. Maryland has started with mint, spinach, collards and kale. Hoping for more next week. Pennslyvania organic spinach will probably start next week.

Last year's organic russet potato supplies will be exhausted a good 2 weeks
before this year's crop begins. New crop of red organic potatoes is very limited. We will carry new whites during the absence of russets. Also new crop yukons. All new organic potatoes will be limited, very expensive but beautiful.

Weather still horrible in California. Organic lacinato kale, kale, collards, spinach, chards, celery all limited and very expensive. Organic celery is almost
non-existent. The current excellent price and quality of orgnic strawberries
will probably end next week, due to rain
