Here’s the expected harvest in this week’s farm shares:
Full share: Green garlic, Onion, 2 Squash, Cucumber, Beans, Chard, 2 Cabbage, Cilantro flowers, Carrots (double portion), Beets(double portion), Cauliflower or fennel, Blackberries, Kale, Amaranth leaves, Dill, Turnips
Half share: Green garlic, Onion, Squash, Cucumber, Beans or kale, Chard, Chinese Cabbage, Cilantro flowers, Carrots (double portion), Beets
Green garlic is a specialty item that you can’t find in most stores! It’s harvested at an early stage before the cloves begin to form and is a favorite of chefs. It can be used in the same way as mature garlic, but doesn’t have such a strong flavor. You can use the tender parts of the stalk and leaves to add spring flavor to your best garlic dishes.
