Here are some of the Morning Glory crops we’ll have at the farmstand this month:

Arugula, microgreens, eggs, nettles, parsnips, radishes and spinach are all available now, along with produce from New England farms on the mainland—including some truly spectacular, certified organic vegetables from our home state of Massachusetts!

On or soon after opening day, we also expect to have our Martha’s Vineyard grown lettuce, salad greens, radishes, rhubarb, fresh batches of both pork and grass-fed beef, boc choi,
catmint, spearmint, peppermint and chives.

Sage, oregano, thyme and rosemary come in mid- to late May and we also will have asparagus by mid-month.

These are approximate harvest dates for our seasonal farm produce. Please keep in mind that many yields, such as asparagus and strawberries, tend to start small and increase over a period of days to weeks, depending on the weather.
