Week 2

This week offers more greens, but we will have different varieties for you to choose from

lettuce mix
choose 2 (spinach, brocolli raab, chard, kale)
parsley, dill, or cilantro

Last year I was feeling really blah about swiss chard.  It's super pretty, but I just wasn't into the flavor.  With our first batch this year Rachel made a swiss chard pie which absolutely rocked.  The lemon is just what the chard needed.  Follow this link, again to Martha Stewart, for the chard revolution (maybe I'm a little too excited about it.)

This weather has made things a little slower than the past few years, which makes those first weeks of CSA challenging.  The chard pie can freeze, so if you want to save those greens for when you will be super-excited for them . . . I am happy about the peas, as I've probably mentioned to you all numerous times already., because next week they give us our first non-leafy green thing. Soon after will follow squash, carrots, scallions, etc

What does like this weather: potatoes, peas, broccoli are all moving forward at a great pace.
