We have enjoyed a lot of iced tea made from lemon balm and sage at coffee hour as well as a chard dish.
There was also a plentiful harvest of garlic scapes that I mixed with basil from the garden and made into pesto. Garlic scapes are the flowers of garlic plants and it is essential that they be removed before they mature so that the heads are allowed to grow. Thankfully, they're also yummy!
|See the curly young garlic scape or "flower"?|
|July 3rd - the first donation of the season with 2 bunches of collards, 2 of chard, 7 of kale, and a small amount of carrots, sage, rosemary, oregano and scallions|
|July 10th donation is very similar to the first, but with fewer greens, and bigger and more carrots and scallions. Yum!|
