This week’s box consisted of……..
lettuce, kale, spring onions, radishes, cabbage, and kohlrabi.
The end of the lettuce season is coming near. The heat makes for a fuller flavor and eventually the plant can’t resist bolting (trying to make seeds.) Planting will be done for a fall crop for many items that have been in the spring boxes including the lettuce (the one I will miss the most). The onions are growing larger and will stay around a while. The cabbage has come on and can be enjoyed in so many different ways. I enjoy an easy dinner of cabbage and ham (or bacon). Cole slaw is a favorite. Having a German background makes me greatly enjoy making kraut. A tablespoon a day keeps the gut populated with good bacteria and your immune system strong. The kohlrabi supply was short but would make a good salad topper; don’t forget to peel it. My Kale will get chopped and cooked with oil to accompany eggs in the morning. I love starting the day with good greens and the best protein available.
Join us next week to learn about rotational grazing, the key to grassfed beef and lamb.
