We often talk about the challenges of finding good local food during long, hard winters here in the northeast, but for all its beauty spring can be a tougher season: preserves run out, root cellars empty and fields come into slow maturity. For this reason, sourcing food for our late April Pig Roast is always a challenge, one we’re still figuring out how to manage.

This year, in addition to slow-smoked pork, homemade barbecue sauce, beans and cornbread, we’ve got carrots that over-wintered in the fields at Massaro Farm CSA, which we’ll pickle; when we came to the Farm to start that process this afternoon, we were thrilled to see the first spring radishes coming out of the ground. The radishes may not make it to the Pig Roast, but we’ll definitely have them at our first May market! The two kinds of roots were both getting washed in the prop house this afternoon, and it was sort of wonderful to see them side by side: the last harvest of the old season, and the first pink-and-white signs of the new.
