2014 week 3

half share gets either romaine or bok choy

June is finally here! And so is the spinach and kale!

Click here and here  and here for previous posts on spinach.

Lacinato Kale also known as Dinosaur Kale is extremely nutritious.  I enjoy kale in my morning green smoothie.  Click here for a link to a salad recipe that is in my menu plan for the week.

We are so excited to have garlic scapes in the share this week from our friends and neighbors Obis One.   Garlic scapes are the tender stem found on a garlic plant.  Use your garlic scapes raw in salads and they will have a hot peppery flavor. Cooked garlic scapes will have a mellow, sweeter flavor.

Here is a link for turnip recipes. These recipes were written with traditional purple top turnips in mind, which are normally larger, you may need to use more Hakurei for the recipe.
