Our Spring Share runs weekly from May 6th through June 7th for Nuance employees. The season for outdoor harvesting in New England would typically begin in June, but thanks to season extension techniques such as greenhouses, high tunnels and root storage, we are able to begin offering produce in May
Most weeks of the share will include a lovely mixture of fresh greens from our greenhouses, and a myriad of storage crops including potatoes, carrots, beets, celeriac and apples. In late April, we will begin harvesting cucumbers from our greenhouses and in later weeks, our tomatoes will begin to ripen. We will sometimes include "something extra" as well, such as a bunch of radishes or fresh herbs, or mushrooms.
You can look forward the following in items your Spring Share, harvest permitting:
Greens: Greenhouse lettuce mix, arugula, mesclun mix, radishes, spinach, tatsoi, swiss chard, kale, bok choy, broccoli raab.
Storage Vegetables and Fruits: Apples, beets, carrots, potatoes, celeriac (depending on harvests and storage conditions)
Other possible crops: tomatoes, cucumbers, mushrooms, herbs, edible flowers
