July 14th CSA Harvest & Pick-Up

Some nice diversity creeping into the boxes this week:

Harvest List
A common question we heard yesterday was, "What can I do with kohlrabi?" Here's a recipe for one of our favourite ways to prepare the beautiful swollen stem (taken from conversations and experiences in Elaine's kitchen):

1. Place the kohlrabi in the fridge for a few hours to get it nice and kool.
2. Peel off outer layer, compost peelings, then chop what remains into long slices, no more than 1/4 inch thick.
3. Add salt (to taste) and the juice of a lime, stir it up.
4. Serve with a nice pilsner, like Central City's Red Racer Pilsner

Here are some images from yesterday's work party. Especially nice are the warba potatoes!
