Murray Hill Farm, Week 2


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.

    Elyse, you are too funny! Why do not love swiss chard but like collard greens? I do have a fabulous Paula Deen recipe for collard greens where they cook long and slow and have BACON in them. Yum!
    Your haul looks great!

    It took me way too long to find the comment place….learning the ins and outs of this new format. I love the pictures. You make a cute eggplant, Elyse. Thanks again for all of the fantastic olive oils! I’m so amazed you got us so much great stuff.
