A Greens Explosion!

weekly CSA produce share
Harness all that photosynthesis and you could power your house!

If there’s anyone out there who doubts that we’re in greens season, he or she only needs to look at the photo above. It seems that, a couple of times each winter, we’re inundated with greens, and this first week back from the annual hiatus is one of those times. And then some. This also gives you an idea that, when you sign up for a CSA, you sign up to have less when crops don’t do well, and, apparently, to fill your refrigerator to the tiptop when you have a greens explosion.

This week’s share:

  • Romaine lettuce (1 head) — the largest we’ve ever seen!
  • Grapefruit (3)
  • Red LaSoda potatoes (5)
  • Celery (1 head)
  • Tendergreens (1 bunch) — an heirloom mustard
  • Hanover Kale (1 bunch)
  • Dill (1 bunch)
  • Michihili cabbage (1 bunch)

The website for the CSA had listed Michelli Cabage [sic] (perhaps Cabbage San Michelle?), but it wasn’t that; it’s definitely a type of mustard green.

Update: It is Michihili cabbage, and heirloom Chinese cabbage. We’ve never heard of it, but that’s okay.
