I’ve been waiting for this day since the depths of mid-winter, when our calendar for bi-weekly shareholders arrived from Sisters Hill Farm. Yes, today was our first pick-up of the season! As I’ve mentioned before, this year we are opting for a bi-weekly share. It was a little bit cheaper and the produce load should not be so heavy on us this year. Last summer got a bit overwhelming!
Our first share included:
- 2 heads of lettuce
- 3/4 lb. arugula
- 1 head bok choi
- 1/4 lb. mixed Asian greens (I went heavy on the red mustard, which is quite spicy and really delicious)
- 8 radishes
The arugula, in particular, is amazing. It has a divine nutty/spicy flavor and I couldn’t help but pick a few leaves out of the bag and munch on them while driving home! Not a bad way to start the season, don’t you think?
