2015 week 4

It's June! Boo-yah!

Returning from previous weeks:
Romaine! Let's enjoy this, since it will be the last lettuce we see for awhile.
Hakurei Turnips
Strawberries in pints, not quarts. Just barely squeaking these out for you. We hope......

New this week:
Kirby pickles//you can use these just like cucumbers, but they are especially great for pickling. Here is a link to a great refrigerator pickle.

Garlic Scapes// 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 to a garlic scape salad dressing

Kohlrabi// I know this is a weird one.  But trust me, it is good and easy to use.

  1. I am so excited about the kohlrabi! I love putting it into a tikka masala sauce with cauliflower, onions, and peppers.
