what's new this week
Swiss Chard: In the spinach family (chenopedia, along with beets) so it shares the oxalic acid taste that some love and some.., well, don't. We harvest ours young and fresh and then keep re-cutting all summer long.
Summer Squash & Zucchini: It is time to eat zoodles of zukes! A mix of yellow, green-tipped yellow (zephyr), flying saucer yellow (patty pan), and green (zucchini) squash to get the season off to a heavy start.
Scallions: Spring Onions, Green Onions, Bunching Onions, or whatever you want to call them. They are a good substitute for onions and leeks (which can't be harvested until August & September). Use the entire plant to spice up a stir fry or dress a salad. Also, great grilled!! Very mild. We should have a good supply of these through mid- August.
