CSA week 14 — Meet this week's vegetables

  • Fall salad mix  — Cool nights and warm days make great growing weather for our fall salad green crops. This mix includes spinach, leaf lettuce, mustard greens and baby arugula.
  • 1 quart mixed gourmet new potatoes
  • 1 pint sugar snap peas
  • 1/2 pint ground cherries
  • 1 bunch red globe radishes
  • 1 rutabaga— Also know as Swedes (for Swedish turnip), they originated as a cross between cabbage and turnip. They make a nice, sweet addition to any roasted vegetables mix.
  • 1 sweet pepper
  • 1 onion
  • 1 head of garlic
  • Fresh herb mix: parsley, sage, oregano, and red sorrel. Sorrel has a lemony flavour, and adds a zesty twist to our roasted potatoes with fresh herbs recipe.
