June 2, 2007 Farmers Market


"Among al herbest, non hath so good juyce as lettyse. It doth sette a hotte stomake in very good temper, maketh good appetite, and eaten in the evenynge provoketh slepe. It provoketh mylke in a woman's breastes, but it abateth carnall appetite. Sir Thomas Elyot, The Castel of Helthe, 1534. June and September are the best months for salad greens for us and this week is no exception. This is the first harvest of the season of our Nicoise salad mix. Based on the wild mesclun of the Nicoise (Southern France) region, these savory once-wild greens are an aquired taste for those whole value their bitter palate. At the market this week we will have:

*Arugula
*Italian Dandelion
*Red Russion Kale
*French Sorrel
*Butterhead Lettuce
*Mangetout Peas
*Carrots
*Beets
*Baby Turnips

Mike, Sir Thomas was right. We got a large bag of the mesclun last Saturday and it's great. I've added walnuts, dried cranberry and a little parmesan for lunch and it made my day. I'm having it for lunch again today.... I can hardly wait!
Thanks for your hard work and dedication.
