... farm share

farm share

today was the first day of our 2009 farm share! ours is from the fabulous helsing junction farm.

we did it for the first time last year and we totally got our money's worth. except for the occasional moldy garlic and wormy corn, the produce was a delight. but, you takes your chances with a farm share, so it's all cool beans. and it's all organic and all grown on their farm outside of olympia, wa.

the first week's produce box contained: three pints of strawberries, garlic scapes, one giant head of lettuce, one smaller head of lettuce, three sweet onions, carrots, snow peas, cilantro and chives.

those strawberries are so amazing.

garlic scapes

don't know what garlic scapes are? don't worry, until last year i didn't either. turns out they are the delicious flowering tops to the garlic that they cut off so that the garlic bulb will turn into a delicious orb of goodness beneath the soil. but those tops are delicious themselves, and often described as a cross between garlic and asparagus. you can make them into a yummy pesto or saute them or whatever.

i am so looking forward to the weeks to come.
