This week, our boxes will include:
- sugar snap peas
- overwintered carrots
- sweet potatoes
- arugula/salad mix
- sword leaf lettuce
- mini-Romaine lettuce
- butterhead lettuce
- garlic scapes
Ideas for Food Prep:
- As I say every week, you might think about braising some or all of your greens.
- Wash any greens you want to use for salads, so they’re ready to go.
- Cut up the carrots and radishes to use for snacks
- Eat your strawberries sooner rather than later
- Have salad dressings (homemade or bought) on hand.
- Think about roasting some sweet potato wedges. They make a great breakfast or snack.

We had an emergency come up, so we forgot to pick up our share and then I was out of town. I won’t be able to post on how we used our share, but I’ll be posting some of the catch-all recipes we use when we need to use up a lot of vegetables later this week.
Have a wonderful week everyone!
gf: gluten free
If a recipe can very easily be made vegetarian, vegan or gluten free using simple substitutes like non-dairy spread, vegetable stock, gluten free soy sauce or a small amount of gluten free flour, or by leaving out an ingredient, I’ve coded them with that in mind. If they include things like mayonnaise, eggs, milk or large quantities of flour, I haven’t coded them as such. I don’t have experience using things like egg substitute, non-dairy cheese or subbing in gluten free flours. Please double check the ingredients for your own safety!
