Besides raab we again have small lettuce heads lettuce and radishes this week. The radishes are mild and sweet this time of year. The greens are also edible and I think they are best chopped small and cooked.
In addition to the radishes we have the first thinnings from the Hakurei turnips. These little turnips are excellent raw or cooked. The are particularly sweet and crunchy with very little brassica bite. Like the radishes the greens are also good cooked.
Rounding out the share is a small handful of Golden Frill mustard. This is typically used as a mild salad green but it can also be cooked. Like the turnips it has little to no hint of the usual bite that mustard greens are known for.
One little piece if extra excitement with today's harvest: a few of you will be getting your shares in a bag with a new graphic. We've lost quite a few bags over the course of the past four seasons so we had a new batch printed up with a slightly different graphic. At some point you'll all see it as we work them into the rotation.
Other than harvesting we're busy planting and seeding. I'll try to give a field update on Thursdays from here out and leave the Monday post to just talk about harvests. All of this sunny weather has been fantastic but we're not quite ready to start irrigating so I'm hoping for a little more rain later this week.
