2 pounds of yellow and zephyr squashes, 1 pound of broccoli, 1 bunch of Swiss chard, bunch of beets, head of romaine, head of escarole, bunch of green Garlic, 1 head of Napa cabbage.
We are back to work now that the rain water has dried up. All the tomatoes are pruned and trellised. All the sweet potatoes are planted. The next round of squashes, fennel, leeks are all planted! And though it is not yet officially summer, it is time to start the fall crops.
Escarole is a bitter green from the chicory family. We like it sautéed with garlic and cannellini beans and some Parmesan and red pepper flakes.
