A beautiful June harvest day produced a lovely basket of freshness for you this week. I’m grateful the rain held off, as muddy harvest days are no fun, but keep your fingers crossed for rain soon, as the garden is entering a state of growth and could really use some liquid refreshment!
Here is the full list of what you will find this week:
- asian braising greens
- broccoli raab
- garlic scapes
- napa cabbage
- red romaine lettuce
- salad mix
- snow peas
- sugar snap peas
With the addition of snow peas, you could make an easy stir fry with the cabbage, braising greens, and scapes. Mmm.. Summer stir fry. Nothing better.
Easy Recipes this week:
- Broccoli Raab: — make a foil boat and drizzle with olive or sesame oil, chopped scapes, and some sea salt and throw on the grill for an easy smokey side of greens!

Please remember to bring your baskets back when you come to pick up your shares!
Enjoy the greens of June. Tomatoes are all flowering and setting fruit for future harvests, and the basil and cilantro is beginning to get growing.
