Lacinato Kale and Pac Choi are in your share as well as the first of the asparagus crop.  The pretty yellow flowers are kale flower tops and they are edible.....throw them in a salad or toss into your lightly stir fried with garlic asparagus!  The stems of the flowers about 2 inches from the top become like wood.....those we dont eat!   Enjoy trying new recipes this week......last night we sampled the baby beets and greens.....look for those next week!

Lots of densely nutritious greens and lettuces this week.  Members will find Red romaine and baby green romaine lettuces in their share, a nice combination for a pretty spring salad.  Corvair spinach is also included.....i like to combine the spinach with a fav nut or seed, dried fruit such as cranberry or fresh pear or tart apple, sliced red or green onions.  Whisk up olive oil, rice vinegar, and a little honey and a little dijon mustard and lightly toss together, then cover with a few blue cheese crumbles.   Of course it is wonderful just on its own with this dressing, but the combination makes it a meal!  Also in your box is a greens mix.....this is a secret All Seasons greens mix which includes tatsoi, mizuna, baby kale, baby cabbage, arugula, and more plus lots of pretty yellow greens flowers.  This is also best with a light sweet dressing.....or some people stir fry it in olive oil and garlic and place on a bed of potatoes or rice or quinoa.  Enjoy!!!!  your farmer, jill
