Clockwise, from upper left corner: Mustard greens, red leaf lettuce, swiss chard, spinach (from Flying Plow Farms in Rising Sun), joi choi, asparagus (ours is just starting to come on, this is certified organic from Lands End Farm in Chestertown), butter lettuce, garlic chives (large share pictured).
Use first (will keep about a week in the fridge): red leaf lettuce, butter lettuce
Store a little longer (about 2 weeks): mustard greens, swiss chard, joi choi, spinach (though be sure to let it dry a bit, its wet!), chives, asparagus (if you can wait that long!)
While your produce is super fresh, it has not been washed! Please take care to always wash your vegetables well before enjoying.
CSA member volunteers, Pat and David, enjoy being buried in farm work!
Happy May, happy Wednesday, and happy Week 2 of Priapi Gardens’ Summer CSA!
We are going to keep it brief this week, the garden is calling! We would like to remind you that half of the fun in cooking Swiss is using those beautiful stems! Chop them up, and saute with onion or garlic, before adding leaves. They will go a long way in adding color and crunch, and veggie volume to your dishes. For some inspiration, try Epicurious’ Chard & Cheddar Omelet recipe.
We hope you enjoy eating “out of the box” this week!
