The First Farm Share Distribution – June 9, 2009

We got our first farm share distribution today, and boy do we have a lot of leafy greens! There are a couple items I’ve never worked with before, so my first challenge was to identify them and investigate recipe options. Garlic scape turns out to simply be the greens of a garlic bulb, which is less spicy and pungent than the garlic head. Another new-to-me item is tatsoi, which is an asian green. We’ll see what I end up doing with these throughout the week.

Other items in the share are spinach, lettuce, swiss chard, kale, collard greens, a few sugar snaps.
