CSA Week #1 (EOW Group #1)

This Week's Harvest:

Butterhead Lettuce--Tender  and sweet, great for lettuce wraps

Sweet Salad Turnips--excellent raw on salads, or sautéed with their greens.  One of our favorite spring vegetables!

Radishes--Bagged red and pink varieties.

Scallions--Mild and tender, use in place of onions just about anywhere.

Spinach--A big bag, enough for a batch of Spinach Zuppa and some salads besides.

Salad Mix--mix of 10 lettuce varieties

Oakleaf Lettuce--another tender variety, great with a creamy dressing.

Pea Shoots--crunchy sweet pea taste!  Use on sandwiches and salads

Cilantro--Garnish your lettuce wraps or make a creamy herb salad dressing.

Basil Pot--can be planted out, potted up for the windowsill, or snipped off for immediate satisfaction!

Honey Bottle--Honey from our beekeeper Sue Richards, from her hives including the ones on our farm!

Storage:

All vegetables this week will keep best in plastic in the refrigerator for 1-2 weeks.  Remove tops from turnips for longer storage (2-3 weeks).

This Week's U-Pick: the herb garden is open!  Mint, Sage, Thyme, oregano, lavender, sorrel, tarragon, and lemon balm are available for picking this week.  If you haven't visited the Herb Garden, just ask us for directions when you collect your share.
