CSA Week #2 (EOW Group #2)

Print

This Week's Harvest:

Romaine Lettuce--Super crunchy and HUGE

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--Another big bag of big tender leaves.

Salad Mix--mix of 10 lettuce varieties

Green Garlic--Larger and thicker than the scallions, and the garlic aroma is unmistakable!  Chop like a scallion for fresh, spicy garlic flavor anywhere you would use bulb garlic.

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

Cilantro or Mint--Cilantro for dressing, pesto, or tacos.  Mint for fresh spring rolls, mint syrup for summer drinks, or to freshen your ice water.

 

EOW Members Only:

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.
