Komatsuna - Japanese mustard spinach

Komatsuna – Japanese mustard spinach

This week’s Harvest Notes have a number of suggestions for how to use or store the items you received this week.  And if you didn’t receive something, please use this form (inserting your name and email address) 

to tell us so that we can check with the farmers that their number of shares matches ours for each group.  Thank you!

The farmers predict that the weekly and Aleph groups will receive some combination of the following items: butterhead lettuce, garlic scapes, salad mix, radishes, carrots, swiss chard, komatsuna, sage, lavender, and scallions.  Do you wonder what komatsuna is?  It’s also called “Japanese mustard spinach,” and comes from the plant species that yields the turnip, mizuna, napa cabbage, and broccoli rabe, which we might see later in the season.  A picture of it is at the right.
