This weeks share consists of watermelons, peppers, tomatoes!, eggplant, cilantro, beets, beans, onions, and lettuce.
Farmer Dan shared this melon cutting technique with us yesterday:
This week's share consists of kale, potatoes, leeks, cucumbers, lettuce, eggplant, cabbage, and watermelons!
Its not quite Potato Leek Soup weather, but you could make a chunky version and serve it cold like a special potato salad. The watermelons are smaller and sweeter than what you can find in the stores. Since they are so thin skinned, almost the entire melon is edible...you can eat the flesh right up to the edge. Scrape it off with spoon or your teeth. There are lots of seeds too; they are very nutritious and contrast nicely with the juicy flesh.
Although the 4th of July always adds some confusion to our share distributions, we still love it. Happy Independence Day!
This week's share consists of Kale, savoy green cabbage, arugula, mixed asian greens, zucchini and zephyr summer squash, edible pea shoot bouquets (the last of the season), baby onions, garlic scapes, and some interesting lettuce varieties.
Garlic. The "Scape" (the swan necked thing at the top), is actually its flower stalk. they will bloom in a few weeks if we don't pick them off. we pick them off so the garlic plant will put all its energy into making a bigger bulb, (and so we can eat them). you can dice them up and use them as you would garlic.
Its been slow growing with all the cool weather, but we do have most of our summer crops in the ground at this point--- and they are looking great!
