June 11 or 14

Freshly made beds for sweet potatoes with garlic and onions in the distance

All boxes this week contain:  1 pint of sugar snap peas, 3 small heads of deer tongue lettuce, 1 fennel bulb, 1 kohlrabi, 1 bunch of scallions, 1 bunch of garlic scapes, 1 bunch of beets, a handful of baby squash and zucchini.  The regular shares also have:  1 lb of small cucumbers, 1 head of treviso radicchio, 1 bunch of carrots!

Try oven roasting the kohlrabi and beets together with salt, pepper, and olive oil and after they've cooled, add them to a salad with the deer tongue lettuce.  A good dressing for this salad is:  1/4 cup red wine vinegar, 1 tsp dijon mustard, 3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil, 1/2 tsp whole grain mustard.  The roasted beets and kohlrabi are also good eaten warm with cannellini beans, scallions and parsley.
