This week we present, GREEN! There is a lot of greens in this weeks baskets. In case you didn’t notice we have been rotating each week between mesclun mix and head lettuce. This week is a mesclun mix week. On top of that we also got a large amount of spinach and a new addition to the bins, arugula. These last two are found in the grey bag. We love arugula in this house. When we would buy greens from the store we always bought the mixed greens with arugula. It is always more expensive but the taste is amazing!!
This week for the choice between radicchio and fennel everyone got radicchio. Radicchio is a leaf chicory which is grown as a leaf vegetable that has a bitter and spicy taste. With grilling or roasting it mellows out. It has a bitter and spicy taste, which mellows when it is grilled or roasted. Martha from Orchard Hill Farm told us that it is already cut up in the mesclun mix each week.
They also posted this sign with suggestions.
