Will you look at that absolutely gorgeous table of veggies from this week’s farm share? I left it all arranged on the table so Drew could see it when he got home from work. (Usually it’s all packaged up in the fridge by the time he gets to see everything). He couldn’t believe it, LOL! This week we got two heads of lettuce, two heads of bok choi, 2 pounds of spinach, a bunch of turnips, 1/2 lb. of arugula, 1 bunch of broccoli, and 6 garlic scapes. As you can see, the scapes are not only delicious, but they also make a dandy bracelet:
That’s right — delicious and fashionable! I snipped some onto my cream cheese-laden bagel this morning and they are so yummy! The boys were actually fighting over the broccoli in the car on the way home. Crazy kids! Last week Drew and I discovered that we really like the turnips raw. They’re a bit midler than radish, and they are great for salads. I’m super excited about the bok choi. I plan on cooking up some stir-fry action with those. I will probably blanch and freeze the spinach to use in soups and sauces later because I just don’t think we can consume all this before next Tuesday! (I know, what a problem to have — believe me I am not complaining!) I also got to briefly meet Erin, one of the farm interns. It’s always so much fun to meet the person behind the blog!
