All signs point to spring—budding trees in the orchard, cheery daffodils popping out of the soil and the arrival of fresh spring “greenery” from the gardens in the form of asparagus, micro broccoli and rainbow Swiss chard, plus sunflower and pea shoots. Thus, spring fare takes center stage in this week’s basket, with a housemade potato-leek soup, imported pasta and flaky smoked salmon all to help accent the bevy of produce that also includes cauliflower, Koru apples and leeks—so open up our delivery, perhaps nibble a Dick Taylor chocolate bunny as you peruse recipes, and then enjoy all that the season has to offer!
