Path Valley Farms - June 20 LIneup

Happy almost Summer! It's getting warmer, even further north in Pennsylvania. The strawberry plants got enough warmth and sunshine to grow! As it continues to warm up, we'll see asparagus and strawberries trail off, making way for even summery vegetables!

Here's the lineup from Path Valley for Saturday 6/20 delivery:

SMALL VEGGIE BAG

  • 1/2 lb mix greens: ever changing mix of mizuna, tatsoi, red/green kale, red/green mustard, scarlet frills, beet greens, and some sylvetta. heavy on the pea shoots this week!
  • 1 bunch asparagus: store in a jar of water in your fridge for freshest asparagus when you're ready to cook! approximately 1/2 lb.

  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes: the tastiest greenhouse tomatoes we've ever had.

  • 1 pint strawberries: delicious. just here for a few weeks :) wash right before eating! soaking in water can degrade berry quality.

MEDIUM VEGGIE BOX

 

  • 1/2 lb mix greens: ever changing mix of mizuna, tatsoi, red/green kale, red/green mustard, scarlet frills, beet greens, and some sylvetta.
  • !not in photo! small bag of pea shoots: these tendrils are great for toast. approximately 2 ounces.
  • 2 mini heads of lettuce: mini lettuce wrap time! try making bo ssam - we can also supply the kimchi + mushrooms (try that in place of pork).
  • 1 English cucumber: thin-skinned greenhouse variety is great for snacking or salads!
  • 2 lbs English shell peas: shelling spring peas is welcome kitchen meditation. save the pods to add to your veggie stock!
  • 1 pint strawberries
  • 1/2 lb rhubarb: we said the rhubarb would make a comeback! make a rhubarb syrup to preserve this spring treat for future sodas (simply add bubbly water!) or cocktails :)
  • a bunch of asparagus: store in a jar of water in your fridge for freshest asparagus when you're ready to cook! approximately 1/2 lb.
  • 1 bunch of spring onions or shallots: aliums make us :) too many for you to garnish and cook with? throw some on the grill or wilt them in your pan to add to your dinner plate!

HAPPY FAMILY VEGGIE BOX

  • 2 lbs Fava beans: Use a vegetable peeler on the length of the bean for easier peeling! From Katie at Path Valley "It’s nearly the only bean worth the trouble.  There are few things more tasty than a big cast iron pan with olive oil and more garlic than you think you need gently turning golden brown and then put in the favas which you’ve carefully taken out of both of their pods and cook them till they are tender.  You will only do it a couple times this season because you won’t have the inclination after that but for me it’s a seasonal hallmark and an easy culinary benchmark."
  • 3/4 lb mix greens: ever changing mix of mizuna, tatsoi, red/green kale, red/green mustard, scarlet frills, beet greens, and some sylvetta.
  • 3 mini lettuce heads: mini lettuce wrap time! try making bo ssam - we can also supply the kimchi + mushrooms (try that in place of pork).
  • small bag of pea shoots: not too much longer for this springtime specialty! approximately 2 ounces.
  • 1 lb chard or kale: your cooking greens this week! 
  • 1 pint rat tail radishes: like a radish, except you consume the edible crunchy seed pod instead of the root! eat these how you'd eat a round, red radish - raw crudite, stir fried, or maybe even pickle them!
  • 1 quart of mixed baby tomatoes: the tastiest greenhouse tomato we've had!
  • 2 lbs English shell peas: shelling spring peas is welcome kitchen meditation. save the pods to add to your veggie stock!
  • 1 English cucumber 
  • 1 bunch spring onions or shallots
