What's in My Box?

I've got all kinds of goodies this week. Most will be eaten fresh- no recipes.

Carrots, broccoli (eaten already), celery, strawberries, chard, field greens, cucumbers, will be chopped for salad or added to smoothies. The cucumbers are bumpy like pickles but they taste delicious as is.

Look at the upper left- 1 (yes, one!) jalapeno pepper! lol Not sure what to do with that.

The curly-cue greens? Garlic-scapes. I had no idea what to do with them but I came up with garlicscape pesto. Yikes! It is so strong a very little goes a long way...... I think I'll be freezing it and adding it to soups and roasts. You can find all about it HERE.

One of my favorite things about summer is the produce. I cannot get enough of it!

Have a happy and healthy weekend.


  1. Try adding some of that pepper to a green drink with greens, celery, cucumber, and apple - a little kick!

  2. Thank you for sharing your box. The colors are beautiful. What a wonderful Creator we have.

  3. You could make a jar of fridge pickles with the cucumbers [and carrots if you need more to fill the jar], add a few rings of the pepper and they d be so spicy and delicious. Maybe a sprig of the garlic thing. Yum! Beautiful selection, Lori.
