So, who will have strawberries?  Truck Patch has Earliglows, Mountain View has Sweet Charley, Reid has Honeyeye and Early Glow and Garner is winding down their  Chandlers and Sweet Charley. Different varieties, different soils make even the same varietals taste different.  Try them all.

NEW: Garlic scapes, the flower stem of the garlic plant.  You cut it off to send growth back down to the bulb. Garlic scapes make great pesto, great seasoning.
