CSA SHARE 6/19/08: what I got

I will be honest.  I did not pay  close attention to what was in the box. I did not pay close attention to what was written on the board. I just bagged leaves and more leaves, and noticed the things that were NOT leaves. I bagged it all, brought it home, and stuck it in the refrigerator. I did not prepare dinner last night and I am not going to eat tonight, so I am not at all sure what all those leaves are that I got.

This is what the email said we would get:

SWISS CHARD
TOSCANO KALE
ROMAINE LETTUCE
GREEN CRISP LETTUCE
STRAWBERRIES
BABY ARUGULA (1/2 POUND)
GARLIC SCAPES
BROCCOLI
CILANTRO
KOHLRABI

It  is  not on the list, but I got  rhubarb!!!!

I have dehydrated the cilantro.

What is kohlrabi?  It is a cruciferous vegetable related to broccoli. It looks like a big pale green bulb with some leaves on top.  I will probably grate it up and throw it in a salad.

What are garlic scapes?  They are the stems of garlic, with little things on the end that will, if left, develop garlic seeds. I got them last year and chopped them up in salads. They taste just like garlic.  This year, they will probably go in some smoothies, too. Yumm.
