What a beautiful week is has been on the Eastern Shore, I hope you got to enjoy some of the warm weather! I started to see some beans and peas sprouting up in the garden this week, which I am very excited about. Did you plant a garden this year? I went a little overboard buying seeds but who knows if I’m lucky maybe I’ll have a few unique things to add to your subscriptions over the summer!
This week’s subscription includes Beet Greens, these delicious greens are high in vitamins and minerals, we just steam them until the little beetroot is fork tender, throw on some butter and sometimes a bit of vinegar and they are ready to eat! One tip I will add is make sure you wash them thoroughly before cooking, there is nothing worse than biting into sandy beet greens.
