CSA main season week 1— Meet this week's vegetables

  •  Spring salad mix — Baby lettuce, arugula, and a little spinach and mustard greens
  • Boston head lettuce
  • Spring onions — Still getting bigger
  • Green Garlic
  • Baby Beets — Perfect sautéed with a little olive oil and some of the green garlic and onion. Make sure to wash them well before eating to remove any remaining soil.
  • Baby Rainbow Swiss Chard — This crop is from our new field planting. Tender enough to be eaten raw, or throw them in with some baby beets.
  • Kohlrabi — We like to cut it in sticks and eat raw, or you can steam or stir-fry. The stems and leaves can be eaten as well.
  • A sprig of dill & parsley
