Well, I’m happy to say that we’re back! The winter CSA started up again this weekend and there are some interesting items, including two that I’ve never heard of. Vitamin greens, according to my search, are related to bok choy, which I’d guessed from just looking at them. Mizuna is a member of the mustard family and is spicy like arugula, so I’m told.
I love Virginia peanuts, so I’m looking forward to doing something fun with those and have actually been missing kale. I don’t know, despite my rant, maybe it really does grow on you?
