Here are the details on how it works, followed by a list of all the goodies we're offering this week. 

How our ONLINE ORDERING works:

What's in the "Weekly Welcome" share ?


* Bok Choy: Classic, best-known "Asian green" -- long green leaves with a white rib.  Ideal for many recipes: steamed, stir-fry, soup.  Also good raw & crisp in a coleslaw-type salad. 

# guide to bok choy:

# stir-fry guide:

* Tatsoi (full shares only): Another versatile "Asian green," darker green, spoon-shaped leaves on a white rib.  Vibrant flavor; superb in stir-fry, sauté or soup, or added to salads.

# advice on "Asian greens" -- keep this handy when working with bok choy, tatsoi, or several other items mentioned here:

* small European "summer" cabbage:  NOT the size you use for stuffed cabbage.  Great for slaw & salad; crisp-yet-tender texture; also good for a quick stir-fry. 

* Peas !!  shell peas *OR* sugar snaps; ASK WHICH KIND YOU HAVE SO YOU'LL KNOW HOW TO USE THEM ! 

* shell peas: you have to "shell" these (remove the pods).  A classic early-summer veggie: steam lightly & add butter, or add them to tossed salad, macaroni salad, pasta with cream sauce, etc. 

* sugar snaps:  these you eat whole, pods & all.  Delicious in stir-fry, or very lightly steamed; you can also snack on them raw, plain or with dip / dressing.

HOW TO TELL WHAT YOU'VE GOT:  Shell pea pods have a "fibrous" texture, & a "string" along the seam; bite into one, and you'll know you don't want to nibble on it.  And, of course, check the board when you pick up, and ASK US !!           

* Lettuce: might be any of several varieties -- red & green leaf, romaine, butterhead ... 

* Green onions aka scallions   

* Broccoli 


FRUIT: Summer Raspberries for all, plus STRAWBERRIES in the FULL shares.

Summer's on, & there's no excuse not to eat FRESH & LOCAL ! 

Order up what works for your week of good eating, & come get it from us.  Hope to see you soon !   

-- Farmer B.
