Winter Greens!

I came home from the Carlisle Winter Farmer’s Market yesterday with lots of spinach from Dragonfly Farms in Pepperell. I’m pretty darned happy! Here’s what four pounds of spinach looks like:

Isn’t it just beautiful???

I’ll blanch and freeze what I don’t eat this week. I recently found a sweet video of two veggie lovers in Missouri demonstrating how to blanch and freeze winter greens. Very useful information!

This year, Shared Harvest CSA has added four-pound quantities of spinach, chard and kale as “extras” to the share for those who sign up and order it by July 15. Picadilly and Riverland will be growing it. Great for shareholders who want to preserve leafy greens for January and beyond!
