This Week’s CSA Box

Veggie Tips

Asparagus: Several very cold mornings knocked our asparagus back but  luckily we have enough for our CSA members. See our Recipe of the Week.

 

Fennel:  See our Recipe Archives

 

Tangerines: from our neighbors at Gold Oak Ranch

 

Green Garlic: Don’t waste any part of this plant.  It is believed to be good for your immune system. For NEWER MEMBERS:  Green Garlic looks like a fresh onion.  This is not a garlic bulb, it is the plant picked before it bulbs.

 

Joi Choi: Greens are versatile and nutritious. If you aren’t sure what to do with Joi Choi, just taste that lovely crisp stem and think about some of the side dishes you have had in Asian restaurants. See our Recipe of the Week.

 

Lettuce

 

Tokyo Turnips:  These provide the third green in your box this week.  Turnip greens are delicious.  The roots are mild and can be sliced up thin and added to a salad — or cooked in a soup or stew.
