October 11 or 14 first extended share

Contents:  1 1/2 pounds green snap beans, 1 1/2 pounds of broccoli florets, 1 pint of sugar snap peas, 1 bunch of carrots, 1 bunch of mixed radish, 2 kohlrabi, 1 head of green bibb lettuce, 1 head of radicchio, 2 pounds of russet potatoes.

Storage:  all things in refrigerator.  remove tops from carrots and radishes if you're keeping them more than a few days.

These beans in your share this week are quite possibly the prettiest beans we have ever grown.  Certainly the prettiest of 2017.  They taste good too!
Radicchio is the small red head in your share.  It is in the chicory family and so is bitter.  It is good grilled with olive oil, salt and pepper drizzled on it.  It is also great raw in a salad with apple or pear, toasted walnuts, blue cheese, and balsamic vinegar dressing.

Peeled and shredded kohlrabi, thinly sliced radishes and radish greens, and sugar snap peas cut on the diagonal or julienned are all great combined and dressed with a vinaigrette or mayonnaise slaw dressing.
