Thanks to everyone who came out to the garlic party! We figure we got about 1/8th of the field picked, so there will still be a few more weeks of picking.

In Your Box:
kale-
chard-
parsley-
basil-
zuchinni-
tomatoes- slicing tomatoes to come soon!
leeks-
potatoes-
daikon-
garlic-
beets-
fennel-
sweet onion-

Sauteed Beets
*start with a little olive oil and ½ a chopped onion in a pan. Add beets cut into quarter inch thick pieces. Add a little water (mixed with a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar and 2 teaspoons tamari or soysauce.) and cover for ~5 minutes. When the beets are as soft as you like, uncover-- add 2 cloves of chopped garlic and all of the beet greens, chopped. (Make sure to cut the beet stems into 1 inch pieces or smaller) Cover for another minute, and then stir and serve.

*fennel and daikon are both wonderful additions to this recipe
