Share for June 28th
This week's share included radishes (valentine mix), our first harvest of carrots, rainbow chard, beets, peas, and (not pictured) lettuce.
Have you ever eaten beet greens? If not, please note that you can treat them like other leafy greens like spinach and chard. If you don't usually like beet greens, try adding them into your chard; the mild flavor of the chard cuts the slightly stronger taste of the beet greens.
If, like me, you generally find radishes to be too spicy, I want to recommend making them into a creamy radish salad. Jenny made it last week and it was delicious! I think all she used was some mayonnaise and dill, but here's a recipe online (I think it also helps to slice them very thin, so use your food processor or mandoline): http://recipes.howstuffworks.com/creamy-radish-salad-recipe.htm
As always, we'd love to hear how you used your share, or let us know if you have any questions.
And most of you have been great about it, but here's a gentle reminder to please return your bushel each week.
Wishing you and yours a happy and safe Independence Day!
