We hope you are enjoying your farm fresh veggies so far! Here is what you can expect at the pickup next week:
- scallions/green onions
- green garlic
- garlic scapes
- Hakurei turnips
- summer crisp lettuces - 1 red & 1 green
- green cabbage
- swiss chard
- And possibly zucchinis (if not this week, definitely next!)
If you don't have time to make salad dressing, toss your greens in olive oil and maple vinegar for a quick and delicious alternative. We had the chance to try the Barkleyvale Maple Vinegar this week and I'm hooked! Jonny wants to use his bartending skills to create a cocktail with it. Apparently, it's delicious drizzled on ice cream! Contact Daizy to order a bottle for next week.
I don't have links to the cilantro and dill because this is the first year we've had a successful crop! I chopped up a handful of both and tossed them in our salad last night - they are fragrant, soft, luscious herbs that can be added to any dish. And speaking of cocktails, add a sprig of our dill to a Bloody Caesar and garnish with a dill pickle!
Beautiful bushy dill in the field!
