Storage: Everything this week will store best in the fridge. All the greens will keep best in plastic bags with the air squeezed out. Strawberries will be best eaten today. Cilantro can be kept in a glass of water with the roots down in the water in the fridge.

GREEN GARLIC INFORMATIONAL
You can use green garlic in any application where you would use cured garlic.
Green garlic is the freshest form of garlic you can use.
It is straight out of the ground and has had no drying time so it has a sweeter, milder flavor than cured garlic.
It is best stored in the refrigerator and used within 2 weeks.
The green top part can be used to make soup broth or stock. It imparts great flavor but is tough to chew so should be strained off before using the stock or broth.
