Nancy McKibben, who is writing about us for Edible Columbus‘s summer issue requested a list of what we’re growing this year. We thought our CSA members and others might also be interested.

Since we are treating this like a community kitchen garden, you’ll notice that we have a pretty wide range of things. In the future, we might limit this somewhat depending on what does best and to build on market demand. We made selections based on descriptions of taste and color, pest and disease resistance, and our research on varieties that do well in vertical growing situations.

Here’s what’s coming up in 2014!

Kale: Red Russian and Lacinato “Dinosaur”

Lettuces: Mizuna, Apollo Arugula, Red Sails (heat tolerant), Fresh Heart Romaine

Chard: Rainbow, Silverado

Beet (We’ll selectively harvest greens for salad mix and bulbs later on): Bull’s Blood, Rhonda

Garlic: Chesnok Red

Onion: Red Zeppelin

Sweet Potato: Beauregard

Radish: French Breakfast, Easter Egg

Carrot: Necora

Tomatoes: Black Cherry, Yellow Pear, Toronjina, Sweetie, Large Red Cherry, Sakura, Annelise, Gilberte Paste, Juane Flame
