Use any kind of kale, or an assortment: lacinato, curly-leaf, Red Russian all work well in this salad. You can also substitute any kind of feta. Mermaid Farm makes our favorite, right here on the Vineyard.
As of this morning at 9 a.m., there are exactly four weeks left until we reopen the farmstand for 2018. Friday, May 4 is the big day, and we’re hoping for an earlier asparagus season this year! The greenhouses are full of plants and we’re starting strawberry pots that should be blooming beautifully by Mother’s Day (May 13).
We’ve already put out the call for entries in this year’s First Peas to the Table contest, and our annual Strawberry Festival is set for June 23. You’ll find many more 2018 events on Martha’s Vineyard listed on our Save the Dates page »».
We look forward to serving you in 2018.
