Harvest Notes for July 17th (Aleph)

The farmers note that it’s never to early to start putting the veggies by for winter – check out the suggestion in this week’s Harvest Notes for freezing some.

The weather this week may affect the contents of our share. The farmers say that depending upon what happens, we should receive a combination of basil, beets, broccoli, cabbage, carrots, cucumber, garlic scapes, kale, lettuce, and zucchini.

Hot and sticky weather seems to call for cole slaw – do you prefer oil-based or creamy?

Last week’s Harvest Notes suggested cooking broccoli leaves like kale – try stir-frying or sauteeing them together with some garlic scapes for flavour. Add texture by adding some sliced zucchini to the mix, or try a grilled zucchini and kale (and broccoli leaves) salad.

Beautiful grilled zucchini and kale salad that you can also make with broccoli leaves.
