In Your Share (July 8th edition)

hith five Looking forward to seeing everyone at the WORK PARTY this weekend! We had a great time last year, and this one is shaping up to be lots of fun too. We’ll be working from 10:30am – 2:30pm. We’ll head to the river for a swim at 3pm followed by a potluck BBQ, bonfire and campout. Hope you can join us!!

There are some great ideas for salad & pizza in your recipe packet HERE.

This week your share may include…

  • Dill: Nice bunches again this week.
  • Carrots: Sweet summer carrots!
  • Collard Greens: This is one of my  favorite recipes for traditional black eyed peas and collard greens. There is also a simple sauté with collards, onion and lemon in your packet.
  • Fennel Bulbs: These  bulbs can be shaved raw to salads or make a nice roasted veggie medley with onions and carrots.
  • Kohlrabi: There are some big bulbs, but they still have  a good sweet crunchy flavor and make a nice addition to salad or you can roast them. The varieties are purple Kohlribi and white Winner.
  • Lettuce: This week we have leaf lettuce and it is green with a pretty red blush. Would be great with the dill and buttermilk dressing in your packet.
  • Spring Onions: Nice big yellow onions – use the bulb like you would a storage onions, and the green tops like scallions.
  • New Red Potatoes: More delicious little new red potatoes! The skins are incredibly tender and may be peeling off already. They’ll make terrific steamed potatoes or first of the season potato salad.
  • Summer Squash: A nice mix of small tender squash in a variety of different shapes and colors including patty pan, crookneck and zucchini.

Coming soon… green beans!
