Second Spring Share May 14th

Today, Tuesday, we will start putting the second share together for the Spring Shares that started last week.  I think we can increase the gallon of greens, and most likely it will be the straight Gourmet Baby Leaf Lettuce Mix.  The Farmer tells me we will also have SALANOVA!–what a treat!  (My package came today from Johnny’s–Each member will get a SALANOVA corer…the hand-held thingy that transforms the head of lettuce to a nice crisp bag of crunchy lettuce leaves.)  Might be two bags of greens this week!  More Spinach, some Kale, and more Radishes.  Will know what SURPRISE the hoop house holds for us when we get there!  (Monday it was about 40 degrees outside and 82 degrees inside the hoop!)

BTW–I was at Bee Healthy this morning.  We still have 3 bags of Spinach and Kale left.  I want you to know the Kale is tender and baby sized.  We left the stem on them long so they can be roasted in the oven.  Easy peasy:  foil on cookie sheet, place leaves on foil, spray with olive oil and sprinkle your favorite seasoning on top.  Bake at 375 for 10-15 minutes–until crisp and crunchy.  Same can be done with the spinach!  (If no olive oil spray, just mix dried herbs in olive oil and lightly dip the leaves, then lay them on the cookie sheet, and bake.)
