Welcome Back, Farm

The farm share distribution started today - a little late due to the late start to Spring. It's so nice to be back out there! Given that it was the first week, the amount of food was more than expected: Napa cabbage, broccoli, a bunch each of radishes and Hakurei turnips, 12 garlic scapes, a pound of komatsuna greens, and 2 pints of strawberries.

For dinner we had a big salad with some of the radishes, turnips and strawberries, as well as goat cheese. I made another champagne vinaigrette for the dressing, this time I added a little fresh parsley and some cayenne pepper for a little extra kick. Tomorrow I plan to have a stir fry with the cabbage and the komatsuna greens and some beef and a little venison - I have random individual servings of various meats in the freezer that should be eaten and I've been looking for ways to use them. This seems like a good plan.

Also tomorrow I might pickle some of the red radishes!
