Path Valley Farms - Week of 6/1 Line Up

Contents for 6/1–6/4:

Medium Veggie Box

The medium veggie box is for two-to-three veggie lovers who enjoy having vegetables throughout the week. Your box is harvested to order, changes weekly, and is chosen to express the best of what is seasonal and delicious, guided by nature and the farmers of Path Valley Farms. Eat all these veggies within a week or so, and go for the delicate greens first.

Spring eating continues with more strawberriesasparagusspring onions, and new carrots. As we approach prime DC mugginess, we’re thinking salads. You could make one of massaged kale or shredded Tokyo Bekana, with a few lightly pickled carrots on top. Make another with mixed greens or arugula and sautéed asparagus. Slice the tomatoesspring onions and cucumbers, add salt, then stir in sour cream. Add dill and you’ve got a quintessential Eastern European summer salad. And for the strawberries, pair them with yogurt and a swirl of Hive Mix Super Honey for a tasty breakfast or dessert.

  • ½ pound kale or 1 bunch of Tokyo Bekana
  • Several cucumbers (slicer or lemon)
  • 2 tomatoes
  • Handful of fava shoots or pea shoots 
  • Pint of strawberries
  • ½ pound mixed greens or arugula
  • 1 bunch of new carrots
  • ½ pound asparagus
  • 2 mini head lettuces
  • 1 bunch of radishes
  • 1 bunch of spring onions

Note: Occasionally the farm will make harvest substitutions depending on what is at peak.

Happy Family Veggie Box

The Happy Family Veggie Box is delightful for a larger family, or four voracious vegetable-centric eaters. Your box is harvested to order, changes weekly, and is chosen to express the best of what is seasonal and delicious, guided by nature and the farmers of Path Valley Farms. Eat all these veggies within a week or so, and go for the delicate greens first.

Spring eating continues with more strawberriesasparagusspring onionsEnglish peas and new carrots. As we approach prime DC mugginess, we’re thinking salads. You could make one of massaged kale or shredded Tokyo Bekana, with a few lightly pickled carrots and Hakurei turnips on top. Make another with mixed greens or arugula and sautéed asparagus. Slice the tomatoesspring onions and cucumbers, add salt, then stir in sour cream. Add dill and you’ve got a quintessential Eastern European summer salad. Fresh English peas are so, so good in rice, blanched and added to salads, or puréed into a bright green soup or dip with tahini. And for the strawberries, pair them with yogurt and a swirl of Hive Mix Super Honey for a tasty breakfast or dessert.

  • ½ pound kale 
  • 1 bunch Tokyo Bekana
  • 1 head of Napa cabbage
  • 1 bunch Hakurei turnips
