Week Two of Spring Shares

What a wild weather week we have had!  79 degrees to snow… Well, that’s March for us.

Shares are done early today for those who want to pick up early.  This week we have wonderful spinach, mixed large greens that are great for sauteing, green onions, radishes, salad greens, parsley, beets and other produce in the mix.

Large greens are great to saute.  It quick and healthy.  Chop leaves and stems coarsely.  Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in deep skillet.  Add greens and a few pinches of salt.  Cook until wilted and tender, but don’t overcook. Add 1 tablespoon of butter or ghee.  Season with zest of lemon, lemon juice or a nice robust vinegar to bring up the flavors.

Next week we are hoping for cabbage, salad turnips (these are so great!), cilantro and possibly rhubarb, and of course other spring crops. In two weeks we should have peas and asparagus!  And of course this all depends on Mother Nature!
