Summer Begins at Oryana
Signs of summer at Oryana: the picnic table umbrellas go up, vegetable seedlings are almost sold out, and Smart Commute Week breakfast is come and gone. But most wonderfully, the local produce is here! We have a variety of wonderful, fresh lettuces, herbs, and cooking greens to start out the summer. Rhubarb is still coming in too for your pies and crisps. Strawberries coming Wednesday!
