Week 4 2013

ImageThis week’s box has some nice splashes of color! Here’s what’s in it:

Carrots from Singing Tree Garden: Perfect crunchy summer snack on a hot day.

Image

Easter Egg radishes from Buffalo Street Farm: Great raw in a salad or roasted to bring out their natural sugars!

Image

Swiss Chard from Farnsworth Street: Can be used as a substitute for spinach in many recipes, including spinach pie!

Plums From Farnsworth Street: There’s a Joni Mitchell line that goes something like, “Leave the spots on the apples, but leave me the birds and the bees… .” Well, we’re happy to announce that the birds and the bees have never been better! However, you may find some spots on your plums. They are, however, no less delicious, juicy and sweet.

Dill From Singing Tree Garden: A must for spinach ( or swiss chard) pies and also great minced up in greek salad dressing with feta!
