Week 3 of 2010

What remains from last week….kale and turnips.

Arrowhead Cabbage, Braising Mix, Broccoli, Head Lettuce, Salad Mix, Scallions, Sugar Snap Peas, Summer Squash, Swiss Chard, Zucchini, Basil, Cilantro, Parsley.
Fruit arrived this week! We got Strawberries.

My plans…

Arrowhead Cabbage
I had not seen this variety before. The chat on the web says it is very tender and buttery. I plan to treat a little like bok choi Рsaut̩ it in peanut oil with a little garlic, salt and pepper.
