It was another week of tasty veggies. So far the plants are coming through and yields have been strong.
Today we distributed the following:
(Here's one of the lettuces. Thanks for posting, Jenny.)
- A bunch of young choi. This is so tender that you could eat fresh or cooked.
- A bunch of arugula - don't forget, the buds are very tasty too.
- A bunch of escarole. This looks like lettuce but is bitter in comparison. Toss this into the end of the cooking process in a saucy dish (like chicken with some broth) or use in a soup. It's commonly used in Italian cooking.
- A bunch of mustard - either green (very spicy) or red-veined (milder). Eat fresh or saute or make a pesto with this.
- Either parsnips or carrots - the last of the parsnips until next fall and the last of the carrots for a good awhile.
- A bunch of radishes.
- A bunch of lettuce - a beautiful bibb lettuce (red and green) or a red romaine or a few heads of crinkly leaf lettuce mixed with romaine.
- A bunch of chard.
- A large bag of spinach.
- Some thyme
- A head or 2 of garlic
- Some sorrel. This is a citrus-flavored herb. It is commonly used in soup but I didn't distribute enough of it to make soup. Hopefully in a few weeks you'll receive this in quantity. In the mean time, dice this up and toss it into your salad. A little goes a long way. Or use it sliced on fish or chicken or rice.
Thanks & enjoy!
