This weeks’ share includes: 1 bunch garlic scapes, 1 pound branching broccoli, 1 bunch red torpedo onions, 1 bunch rainbow chard, 1 bunch baby beets, 1 bag of spinach, 2 heads of lettuce.
Following is a link for a recipe that uses the beet greens as well as the roots. It calls for 1 large beet but you can use the babies as well. They don’t take nearly as long to roast.
The farm is moving toward summer. New potatoes will be ready soon as well as summer squashes and cucumbers. And already we are planting crops for the fall. It’s an interesting thing with this vegetable farming… there is so much that needs immediate attention and action in the present moment but also we must always be thinking 3-6 months out.
I hope you enjoy the vegetables this week!
