Did you know one way to keep kale fresh is to store it in water in a mason jar or clean vase, just like you would cut flowers? Just keep it on the counter!
Here are the varieties of vegetables in some of the shares this week:
First shares of the 2019 season may have contained scallions, Red Russian kale, a new variety of beets called Eagle, salad greens, and rhubarb. Our rhubarb has traveled all over the state, being passed on from generation to generation. It started in Union, then was moved to Bradford, Camden, Augusta, then here in Palermo...or so the story goes. Did you know it's very high in vitamin C? Aside from strawberry-rhubarb pie, if you slice it thin, it's excellent in coffee cake.
It's been a slow spring. Things are growing nicely and it's great to start enjoying the harvest.
What did you do with your veggies this week? Feel free to comment and share!
