Week 5 Premium CSA Share Meal Plan

Week 5: July 8th – 12th

Premium Share Box:  KohlrabiLettuceScallions, Fennel, Radish, Basil, Japanese Eggplant, Parsley, Collard Greens

This week’s share brings the first of our Japanese eggplants from the high tunnels! Japanese eggplants are long and slender, and work great on the grill like in the recipe below. We also harvested fresh beets with greens yesterday, the beets and greens are edible. Speaking of edible greens, did you know you can also eat radish greens? They’re a great peppery addition to salad. The basil just keeps coming, these beautiful bunches are great in pestos, or sliced as garnish. Bunches of scallions have been plentiful! Soon we’ll have onions, but the scallions are great in salads and omnivores can try them bacon wrapped.
