surrealestate: (Sentient Broccoli)

It’s farm share time! As always, it begins with a flood of greens, and as always, a list does not convey just HOW MUCH this is, even though it’s actually small for Parker, believe it or not. I don’t mind ramping up, though — less of a shock to the system. :) Not to mention how perfectly beautiful and delicious each item is. Wow.

Week 1

  • 2 bunches Japanese Turnips (w/ Greens)
  • 2 bunches Pea Tendrils
  • 2 bunches young Kale
  • 2 bunches Swiss Chard
  • 2 bunches Collard Greens
  • 2 heads Napa Cabbage
    = ~14#

In order to fit everything into the fridge, I had to get to stuff last night, so I went with tradition and made a big batch of my Greens and Peanut Stew using all the collards, chard, and turnip greens. This had the added bonus of giving me a reason to use the one last butternut squash I still had left from last year’s share. May the circle be unbroken.

I could have thrown in more of the greens, but I want to do a massaged kale and avocado salad. (Which reminds me that wow, I could really use a massage.) I’m also thinking a batch of kimchi with at least one of the heads of cabbage and some turnips. Maybe a nice slaw/salad with the other. Napa cabbage is so good. Not sure about the pea tendrils yet. I’ve never been great at figuring out the best uses for those.
