Week 5's Harvest Fashion Shoot

This week's edible collection bursts forth with
freshly dug new potatoes, sweet onions, parsley sprigs, Swiss chard, all-star lettuce mix, spinach,various head lettuces, and kale, and snow & snap peas, and the last strawberries of the season!

Wendy Schmiedicke

recommends boiling new potatoes gently "in their jackets" and tossing them with oooodles and oooodles of melted butter, salt and pepper, and fresh chopped parsley.

Going outside to hang the washing out to dry?

Stuff some of these snap peas into your apron pockets for a pleasant snack in the sunshine...

Drive the goats crazy sporting sprigs of aromatic flat and curly leafed parsley...

Say "Ah!" as you savor a forkful of this week's salad mix and spinach, & chard.
