The time is ripe—for just about everything! From broccolini, beets and French breakfast radishes to Rainier cherries, sugar snap peas and a host of beautiful herbs and greens, this week’s box is a display of early summer splendor. The refreshing lineup of produce is also complemented by such salad-ready provisions as Italian Corona beans, imported orzo pasta, edible blooms and sun-dried tomato-kissed Pomodoro bread, as well Cherry Valley Dairy butter and a fleur de sel chocolate bar to end things on a sweet note. Enjoy!
