June 21st Pickup: Vegetables

Still going strong with the salads, but there’s quite a bit of other veggies in the mix this time. All vegetables this week should be stored in an airtight container in the fridge.

Pickups are at Sunnyside Community Services from 5-8pm. Here’s what’s in the box for June 21st:

Baby Arugula – Super baby size, best eaten raw. Use within 3 days.

Escarole – This lettuce-looking green is best eaten two ways: cook the outer leaves, eat the inner ones raw. Use within 5 days.

Collards – These are great as wraps–you can blanch ahead of time and store in the fridge so they’re ready to go. Use within 5 days.

Red Beets – Another two-for-one…the greens can be cooked and eaten like spinach, the roots are sweet and tender this time of year for cooking or eating raw. Use within 5 days.

Cilantro – Get ready for pesto time! Use within 5 days.

Japanese Salad Turnips – These roots don’t need to be peeled, and can be eaten raw or cooked. The tops can also be wilted and eaten like spinach. Use within 5 days.

Bok Choi OR Spinach – Whichever one you didn’t receive before, you should be getting this week! Use within 5 days.

Please note that any boxes not picked up by 8pm will be donated to SCS, and items are subject to change. Look for Golden Earthworm Organic Farm CSA on Facebook for more recipes from members!
