**Please note: The asparagus season usually starts right as the CSA season is beginning. This year, however, asparagus came in two weeks early, which means it is going out two weeks early. We have less asparagus than we usually do at this time of year, and that is why it is not available pre-picked in this week’s boxes. But the good news is that we’ve had many more strawberries this year than in previous years.
