Potatoes are also on the list, as well they should be after our successful haul! This week I'm offering a yellow variety called Nicola, which is a flavorful waxy potato perfect for boiling, frying, or roasting. We're also going to break into the purple top turnips, which didn't germinate well (I think I should have planted more seed) but the ones that did grow are nice and big. Try mashing some with potatoes for a tasty twist on a classic dish. (The voles have already been enjoying them, unfortunately, but if you get one that's been gnawed on, it will come off when you peel it.)
Finally, the lettuce of the week is another showy choice from Wild Garden Seeds called Flashy Butter Oak. Happy eating!
