Thursday July 2 Share

This week's haul:
bok choy
red chard
Snow peas
2 kohlrabi
2 summer squash
5 cucumbers
2 qts cherries

And the Rot Report- what's left from last week:
snow peas
!1/4 head of romaine!
1/2 head Bok Choy
red radish
white radish
green onions


  1. Suggestions for rot alert items:
    Pasta primavera (all time use-things-up versatile recipe), include radishes & greens, squash, snow peas,... good EVOO & lemon juice or go Japanese w/soba etc. Romaine can be used as a green in a hot soup, or braised.
    Shred stuff for slaw.
    For excess cukes -Taziki or cold cuke/gazpacho soup? Or Cukes w/rice vinegar, sesame oil, pepper flakes & black sesame seeds

    Will Barnacle Bill share his artichoke pesto recipe, since it's been a significant item in some of your recipes?

  2. barnacle bill is pretty tight lipped about it. He admits to throwing undisclosed amounts of walnuts, marinated artichoke hearts, marinated sundried tomatoes, and romano cheese in the food processor....

    SLAW is a great to it!
