Yesterday was full of more greenery and you could really tell a difference with all of the sunshine! Our boxes were full and vibrant! Let's see what we ended up with...
- Pac Choi - which is just another way of saying Bok Choy or Chinese Cabbage
- Braising Greens
- More Strawberries
- Green Garlic
- Head Lettuce
- Mixed Salad Greens
Well it is basically the young, immature garlic that has yet to form any bulb or cloves. The whole plant can be used, from the white parts, to the lighter green, to even the dark leaves. Our CSA newsletter said that it's great when used in soup stocks.
Having never used green garlic before, I'm excited to experience it's flavor! Anybody have experience with this? Let me know how I should use it!
And I know this is still kind of early in the season, but I'd love to know what you guys are getting from your CSAs and Farmer's Markets right now! Send me a picture or a link to your blog and I'll post it next week - details below!
***If you guys received a CSA this week, what did you end up getting? I'd love to have a weekly round-up of your CSA goodies (if you participate in one), or even if you made a weekly visit to your Farmer's market - I'd love to see the local produce everyone gets! So feel free to e-mail a snapshot of your goods (as well as your name and blog title (and don't worry if you don't have a blog, your name will be just fine!) as well as link to your blog) at mtlabor85 (at) yahoo (dot) com and I'll post them in next Thursday's CSA post!
