Eatwell Farm Box Coming this Week to a Location Near You! 4/17/2013

Wow, time sure flies when you're having fun!  Another week has gone by and it is time once again to think and dream about all the goodies in this week's box of fruits and vegies from Eatwell Farm.  Here's the list -

Albion Strawberries
Mini Lettuce
Polar Bear Spinach
Yellow Onion Scallions
... Sugar snap peas
Late Washington Navel oranges
Lisbon lemons
California Late Green garlic
Red Ace beets
Spring cabbage or cauliflower
Tokyo Market turnips

Oh boy, oh boy - STRAWBERRIES - yum.  We wait in anxious anticipation all year for those first strawberries and here they are.  Soon there will be strawberry days at Eatwell Farm.  This is my all time favorite way to see the farm, next to the tomato sauce days, of course.  We can pick all we want and eat all we want in the fields - what a delight.  And then, to come home with all those great berries, ready for jams and fresh strawberry pie.  What could be better!

OK, so we've got lemons - time for Indian lemon pickles.  We've got cauliflower that begs to be make into aloo gobi.   Turnips and red beans Indian style, yum.  Beets, hmm, I still have some from last week's box so some borscht is begging to be made, use the carrots and scallians in that.  Spinach as a side dish for the Indian food along with some lamb chops braised in a spicy Indian masala.  Green garlic is great sauteed and mixed with some scrambled eggs.  Sugar snap peas in a spring salad of baby lettuce greens.  All good eats here.  Enjoy!
