This week’s share has a variety of items to fit right in to our summertime cuisine. From berries and arugula that can be eaten without preparation. Onions, zucchini, and kohlrabi that can complement any grilled meal. To cabbage and frisee, which are perfect for light meals in the summer heat.
Red Italian Dandelion Greens
Great Lakes Lettuce
Early Flat Dutch Cabbage
Walla Walla Onions
White Venus Kohlrabi
Red Leaf Lettuce
Extra Eight-Ball Zucchini
Mixed Long Zucchini
Extra Dinkum Raspberries
WEEKLY UPDATE FROM DAVID:
CHERRIES AND BLACK CAP RASPBERRIES: This is the last of the Cherries and Blackcap Raspberries.
FRUIT: David tries to bring us the ripest fruits so it is often important to eat the fruit in your share quickly or freeze it to preserve it for a later date.
NEXT WEEK: There is a possibility of apricots in next weeks’ share.
SAME BUT DIFFERENT: Special Note. The Arapaho Blackberries can quickly disguise the Blackcap Raspberries. Please see the tiles to see a comparison between the two berries. Also, the Mustard Greens and the Frisee were bagged together. Again, please see the picture tiles. The Mustard Greens have edges that are more loose, less crinkled.
I am excited to grate and cube some of the extra zucchini and freeze it. In winter I will add the cubes to soups and use the grated zucchini in breads. Also, I am going to make a salad with the frisee, arugula and berries for lunch tomorrow.
From our garden to your kitchen, happy eating.
