This week’s box included apples, garlic, yellow squash, zucchini, lettuce, and Swiss Chard. I hate Swiss Chard and gave it to a lady who was chatting me up at the farm stand. Then, I told Chuck that I gave away the chard and he gave me some collard greens instead! Yay for knowing your farmer. I purchased some garlic scapes, kohlrabi, and the small bottle of olive oil. Chuck said his friend makes it in Italy, imports it, and it takes a month to travel by boat!! Can’t wait to taste it.
Other highlights from the market: the man playing recorder for entertainment, trying lavender jelly, trying rose geranium jelly (both of which taste like candles), and sticking our heads in the vegetable display.
