What’s Ripe Now: Sweet Roots Farm is transitioning from cool spring to warm season crops. We’re harvesting greens like cabbage, collards, kale, chard, arugula, lettuce, and dandelion greens; roots like daikon, carrots, beets, turnips, and kohlrabi; zucchini, garlic, fennel, parsley, cilantro, dill, cut flowers, and most recently, cucumbers and new potatoes.

What’s Sprouting Next: Sweet Roots sits in a cool spot of Nevada County so we’re waiting for our little green cherry tomatoes to turn golden and full of sweet and tart flavors.

Favorite Bloom: Cardoons, a relative of artichokes that we use for cut flowers, are flowering now. Their ultraviolet blooms attract many bee species that bury themselves deep inside in search of nectar.

Sweet Roots Farm is located on Auburn Road in Grass Valley. To sign up for a weekly CSA box or to learn more, visit
