This week’s veggie sale: Mixed greens, chives, kale and arugula
It’s mixed greens and chives this week at the weekly Veggie Sale. Here’s more from Libby
This week we have a lovely mix of organic salad greens that have a dynamic range of leaf shapes and colors. An amazing palette of greens and reds in an array of leaf shapes and textures. The flavors are equally diverse: spicy to mild to slightly sweet. This mix includes red mustard, green mustard, arugula, Chinese cabbage, pac choi, and tatsoi. Varieties are subject to change depending upon availability.
Get a large bag of these chives which are a wonderful addition to many of your staple dishes. Chives are rich source of vitamin K, C, and folic acid. They are also high in minerals such as manganese, magnesium and iron.
Get your very own chive pot to keep in your home for harvest when needed.
Red Russian Kale- $4/bag
Add some variety to your greens life with this kale. Stems are purple; leaves are flat, toothed, and dark green with purple veins. This plants also has leaves that are more tender compared to other kales. Great for salads and light cooking!
This variety has long, dark, lobed leaves which add nice shape to salads. With fresh, tart, bitter, and peppery flavor my favorite way to incorporate these is in sandwiches.
