We are trying something new this year, providing printed Harvest Notes at pickup as well as the online version. For those in every-other-week shares, you can read the Harvest Notes online for weeks you don’t pick up, to get information and recipes about the veggies. If a vegetable or herb appears more than once, we try to give different recipes and ways to use it.
Our first pickup is almost here! On Thursday the every week and Aleph groups will pick up their veggies for the first time this season. The farmers say that “everything looks beautiful” and this week you’re likely to receive Bok Choi, Cilantro, Lettuce Heads, Radishes, Salad Mix, Scallions, Sugar Snap Peas, and Turnips, which this early they generally have a thin skin and can be eaten raw like radishes.
Don’t forget that this year the pickup is at Beth David Synagogue on the corner of Farmington Avenue and Dover Road. Go up Dover to the parking lot and enter through the door there. Also remember that BDS hosts a pizza bakery on Thursdays, plan ahead and you can have dinner with your salad and greens.
