Pretty much anything your pea-picking heart desires…but not melons…yet!

  • juicy peaches
  • greens, including lettuces and kale
  • bright, crisp onions
  • garlic scapes
  • sweet carrots
  • ruby red beets (use this fabulous recipe shared by Cobblestone Market for easy-peasy beet chips-no peas actually involved)
