Echo Bend CSA Subscription Harvest, June 20, 2012

Last week brought us freezing overnight temps, this week we are roasting like a broiler chicken on a spit! Everything is growing like it’s July, though. Big tomatoes are setting on the maters and peppers are sizing up. In mid-June! Here’s hoping the greens and peas can withstand the heat this week and don’t frizzle out on us too soon.  Speaking of which, you know the only problem with snap peas???

…there’s NEVER enough! 😉

This week, though, they are joined by their lovely cousin, the snow pea. Ah, deliciousness, whether cut into slivers and sprinkled over a salad, chicken or egg salad, or sandwich or sauteed up by themselves with scapes or with a passel of other veggies.

SWAPS:  There is a spot on the farmstand fridge labeled swaps where you can trade something in your basket with someone else.  Leave something — take something!

Here are the contents of your share basket this week:

  • arugula (I kept this separate from your salad greens so that you can add it according to your liking.)
  • bok choy
  • garlic scapes — chop and garnish salads, pastas, pizzas with them fresh or sauteed.
    These are the flower stems of garlic, and have a milder flavor than bulb garlic.
  • Kale, Lancinato/Dinosaur or Winterbor Curly
  • napa cabbage
  • mixed salad greens
  • raab   —  Raab is wonderful sauteed (with eggs is my fav), roasted, steamed or grilled in a foil packet with EVOO.)
  • radishes, Easter Eggers (I love these best as an appetizer just dipped in salt and CRUNCHED)
  • spinach
  • sugar snap peas
  • snow peas


COMING UP:  bok choy and…?

TIPS:  Angelic Organics has a handy guide for how to store various kinds of produce:

Remember to bring your share bag/basket/box back at pick-up time next Wednesday!!
