Basket #2 – July 10

Hello All,

Breaking news from the field: We’ve got beets! (For those of you who were with us last year, this will be significant).

This week’s offering will include:

Lettuce
Sauté mix (beet greens, spinach and chard)
Arugula OR Easter Egg radishes
Beets (the tops are fantastic so add them to your sauté mix)
Baby carrots
2 fresh garlic bulbs
Young onions
Curly kale (the cooking or marinating kind)
Red Russian kale (for light sautés or raw in salad)
Dill or rosemary

Check below to see member Jen Bergevin’s weekly menu using this week’s basket for inspiration.
