The days are getting longer, the crocuses are blooming and the birds are singing — but this is still March on Martha’s Vineyard, where spring comes at its own leisurely pace.

Fortunately, last summer, we took some of our tastiest fresh produce to Boston, where the nonprofit CommonWealth Kitchen whipped up these pestos that bring back the flavor of hot, sunny days. 
You can find them in the freezer atop the self-service fridge where we sell the eggs. Choose from garlic scape or basil pesto, made with real Parmesan cheese and extra virgin olive oil. They both taste like summertime.
