Happy Wednesday! Our greens really loved the spring-like weather of the past few weeks, they grew like crazy! Your spicy salad mix, spinach, claytonia, and kale are all harvested from the greenhouse, so they are very tender and would be excellent raw. The brussels sprouts were harvested from our garden Saturday morning before the extreme cold, they are so sweet! Just pluck them from the stalk prior to cooking.

You’ll notice we left the tops on your rutabaga and black radishes this week. They are excellent for sauteeing, steaming or braising. The rutabaga greens are reminiscent of broccoli. Black radishes are quite spicy! We were drooling daydreaming about stir frying them with the joi choi. We hope you enjoy your shares this week…plenty of greens to keep you feeling great and nourished!

Don’t forget to double check that you are taking the right size share when you pick up your box; the brightly colored sticker on the side will indicate whether a share is small or large!

Happy eating,
Vic, Mary, and Bethany
