In this week’s share: June 25th, 2009
Summer harvest is going strong! This week you’ll get:
- “Parris Island” lettuce
Parris Island is a crunchy Romaine leaf, and is great in a classic Caesar salad.The Red Butter Head is a wonderful Amish heirloom plant with a good buttery
flavor. Try it with a citrusy vinaigrette dressing and sharp flavored cheese!
- “Red Butter Head Speckle” lettuce
- “Albion” and “Seascape” strawberries
- “Slice” cucumbers
We just harvested a huge crop of culinary lavender! It is included in the CSA farm share and available for purchase at the store on XX/XX.
Lavender isn’t just for soap and candles—it is a fantastic complement to drinks,
desserts, and entrees! Here is a lavender lemonade recipe to get you started.
