Early Season week 3 — Meet this week's vegetables

  • Heirloom leaf lettuce mix
  • 2 red romaine lettuce heads
  • Rainbow Swiss chard — Great steamed, boiled or stir-fried
  • Hakurei turnip — AKA the salad turnip. A delicious japanese white-flesh turnip that can be eaten raw. The greens can be eaten as well.
  • Pak Choi — An Asian vegetable, perfect in a stir-fry.
  • Green garlic — A young garlic stem, the result of a little thinning we had to do in the garlic beds. Chop it up, and use it as you would mature garlic.
