Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) Member News
The season has begun! Farm Members, please refer to your pickup schedules. In this week's share:
Green Simpson Lettuce - x 2 - A double-sized bag of this heirloom spring lettuce! Simpson lettuce is light green and very delicate. You'll never see it in a grocery store due to it's delicacy; it's a lettuce that is meant to be enjoyed fresh & local. Great for wilted lettuce salads!
Arugula - x 2 - A double-sized bag of arugula! The arugula harvest this year looks amazing! Large leaves of arugula with a beautiful bright green color.
Radishes - Beautiful "Easter Egg" radishes in a multitude of colors: red, pink, purple, white. The leaves are left attached, and are also edible - try some on a salad, the greens taste similar to the radish root itself.
Red Oak Leaf Lettuce - Beautiful light red colored lettuce. Try mixing in several of the greens in this week's share for a beautiful salad of many colors & flavors!
Asian Greens Mix - A mix of Mizuna, Tat Soi, and Red Mustard greens. Packs a bit of a peppery flavor, and is nice mixed onto a salad or very lightly stir-fried. Delicious fresh raw or cooked.
Spinach - The first spring leaves of spinach! Delicious on a salad.
