UPDATE FROM OUR FARMS IN SANTA MARIA, CA & OXNARD, CA:
RAINS TO CONTINUE THROUGH TUESDAY
A cold and unstable air mass moved in Monday afternoon with rain showers and hunderstorms. Thunderstorms can produce strong down burst, periods of heavy rain, hail and lightning.
An upper-level trough will follow today (Tuesday) with more rain showers.
High pressure is then expected to build back into the region Wednesday and should produce night and morning Santa Lucia (offshore) winds and dry weather through next Sunday.
Items heavily affected so far – Romaine and Baby Arugula. Both items will be tight this week. Chefs – let me know qty’s you’ll need for the end of the week on the Arugula, and I will work to keep enough in house.
Mangos are getting further into their season, so we should start to see the Ataulfos and Tommy Atkins in the next few weeks. The Kents have been really tasty.
We are also starting to see more varieties of MX Melons coming in.
Lastly, keep in mind it’s Spring in Mexico! If you want to get a headstart on any spring items like English Peas or Green Garlic, let me know and we can start bringing those in house.
