Please take a look at Monday’s blog post for ideas for fennel. Here’s the link: 6/24/13
In your share today:
fennel (w/ tops)
loads of lettuce – 2 heads of “winter density” the romaine, and 2 butterheads (you have either “optima” or “sylvesta”).
basil – just a bit — chop it up to throw on top of a salad or perhaps finish off a coconutty dish? Or just have it with some bread and cheese.
snow peas – this will be the last of the peas. This batch is snow peas, so they are great for stir fries.
kale – today’s cooking green is “white russian kale”. I find it’s taste very sweet and interesting right now, and it’s quite tender so should cook relatively quickly.
Today I’m headed to pick up more T posts and twine to trellis the pole beans and outdoor tomatoes. I’m also getting back on the irrigation train as we prepare for the heat wave! With a little luck I’ll also get some lettuce and celeriac transplanted this afternoon. Stay cool this weekend with some nice salads. cheers, Matt.PS – REMEMBER THAT NEXT WEEK’S PICKUP WILL BE WEDNESDAY INSTEAD OF THURSDAY DUE TO THE HOLIDAY.
