What’s in the box?

Hakurei Turnips – Pick’n & Grin’n @ Lattin Farms
Broccoli – Pioneer Farms
Green Cabbage or Napa Cabbage – Pioneer Farms

Assorted Herbs – Lattin Farms

I have my add on items … bread, teriyaki beef jerky and a salted caramel-pretzel crust brownie.   OH!  And, eggs from Lahontan Farms that are somehow not in the photo.   This is a new thing on the basket share for me.  The weekly add-on items change and you order them in advance.   Fun, local, yummy stuff!

This week includes the beef share.   It was a full cooler load from York’s Meats in Fallon.

The packages range in portion size but included top sirloin (x2), rib steaks, chuck steak, carne asada (x2), ground beef (x5), and chuck roast.

We are pretty excited to try some Nevada beef — especially after a few weeks of heavy greens.

Stone Ground Wheat Bread by The Bread Lady and fresh eggs from Lahontan Farms

Talk about a fun week of tasty things you don’t see everyday!   I love that there were more sunflower shoots — I can just eat them straight out of the box.   BUT, I was really looking forward to the kohlrabi this week.   Mmmmmm.   This is a truly unique thing.   I remember having it a few years ago during the last CSA round but I don’t see it at the store very often.  (And, who knows how far it traveled to get there??)

Aren’t the little French breakfast radishes pretty??

Now, on to this kohlrabi matter … last time, I just ate the root, sort of as shown below.  Trim it up and it’s like a radish-apple-green flavor.   You can cook them if you want but I literally just ate it straight up like nothing.   Yum-O-fresh-O.

I did notice that there were a TON of greens on the top and discovered (after quick Google) that you can eat those too.   Sooooo, I saved them for recipe experiment later.

Extra! Extra!   How about a better look at this luscious bread we have been getting every week?   It is wonderful.   Stone ground wheat by The Bread Lady.

And, in case I have not said it enough … these sunflower shoots are the bomb-diggity.
