Jess & Nick's CSA Delivery #2 - May 23, 2012
Here is what Nick and I found in our farm share box last week. Starting in the top left we have our herb pack. I always look forward to getting this little pack each spring and I have my basil, rosemary, parsley and thyme planted and sitting out on the deck already. I shared the sage, oregano, and summer savory with my sister since I have huge shrubs of those planted in the yard from previous herb packs and they come back every year. Moving clockwise brings us to our second, and probably last, ramp bundle of the season. We usually pickle these so we can extend the season just a bit longer. In the bottom right we have green garlic and parsnips, followed by chives, and then our first bunch of asparagus of the year! Unfortunately we were out of town for Memorial Weekend and didn't get to the asparagus as early as I would have liked. But, we broiled it up last night and topped with poached eggs, shaved parmesan, chopped ramps, fresh lemon juice, plus salt and pepper to taste. Delicious! Not pictured is a big bag of sweet, overwintered spinach, which is always the best of the year in my opinion.
Thank you Harmony Valley Farm!
