This weeks share will contain:

Asparagus

Baby Butter Crunch lettuce

Red  Romaine

Radishes

Red, Yellow and White fresh green table onions - All members of the onion family are  very good for the health of your blood. This benefit is more pronouced when used fresh instead of cooked.

Garlic Scapes- This is the green curly or swan shaped item in your box. Keep it refrigerated in the crisper drawer or a sealed bag until you are ready to use it. Chop it fresh into a salad, soup or sautee it. I love them so much that I eat them like licorice. Milder then the clove form and can be substituted almost any where that you would use cloves.

Kale - Red Russian-  Brocollis Big Brother when it comes to warding off cancer. Packed full of vitamins and minerals.  Suatee,Juice,Fresh in Salad or make kale chips: Destem, Drizzle with olive oil and Bake at 350 for just a few minutes, remove from oven and salt to taste. If the leaves become dark in the oven it will become bitter tasting
  NOTE: if you have an abundance on onions, they store well if you chop them and freeze.
