Friday June 21 was the first pick up. I have to say, I was very excited when I got the call. We have had a lot of rain and cool weather this spring so the crops have been slow to grow. Dianne went to Leamington to add to the boxes. Bonus for me!
- spring onions
- grape tomatoes
- 4 peppers
- garlic scapes
In the above picture you'll notice some curly greens. Those are garlic scapes. I hadn't even heard of these before. When I got home I had to google them. You can use them just like garlic and chop them up or grill them. I did both, I hope to get them again.
The strawberries were so good. You forget over the winter what strawberries should really taste like. Mia ate a bunch before I could take the photo. They were gone moments later.
I didn't want anything to go to waste so of course Pinterest was quickly consulted. I don't follow recipes very well (I heavily modify) so I combined a few.
This week I made a Pasta Carbonara with greens, garlic scapes and asparagus.
Grilled Fajitas, salads, sandwiches were all on the menu this week. I can't wait for next!
On a side note: Mia is the dirtiest kid alive.
Now for the cleaner kids:
