Hooray, hooray! It’s time for farm shares to get going and yesterday was our first pick up at Sisters Hill Farm. We opt for a bi-weekly share because the amount of produce we typically receive is just too much for our family to consume in one week. But by going every other week, it works out perfect.
As you’d expect this early in the season we have mostly greens. Considering how much lettuce mix we go through, trust me – it’s a good thing!
So, Share #1 consisted of:
- Lettuce (three heads!) – I chose 1 Romaine, 1 Butter, and 1 Red Leaf
- 1 lb. of your choice kale, Asian braising mix, Tat Soi – I split it between the kale and braising mix.
- 1/2 lb. spinach
- 1/2 lb. arugula
- 8 garlic scapes
- 1 bunch radishes
- 1 bunch Hakuri turnips
Bok Choi was also available, but I skipped it. I’m just not a fan. This morning I revved up my food dehydrator for a batch of Parmesan kale chips. I’m quite excited about those! I’ll probably eat a turnip, radish, and arugula salad for lunch. I’ll make creamed spinach either today or tomorrow (yes – I’m back on dairy!). And I’m not sure about the Asian braising mix. Originally I was just going to saute with garlic and olive oil, but… I have four beef marrow bones in my fridge. I’m thinking of roasting them, making beef stock, and then throwing in the greens for a quick (and ridiculously healthy) soup. Gotta think about that one.
