csa wk 13 sept 3-6
This weeks share consists of beets, carrots, lettuce, bok choi, savoy cabbage, tomatoes, peppers, zucchini and/or patty pan summer squash, a small sack of potatoes, fresh dill, and an ornamental amaranth flower- the floppy red thing.
The tiny amaranth flower seeds may fall out and get on your vegetables (or counter), but don't worry, they're actually an edible cereal grain. People all around the world grind them up to create a flour that is gluten free and high in lysine. One large seedhead contains up to 500,000 seeds.
