What to Do With Your Share---Week 17

As the rain settles in and we survey the impact of all the recent rain, it is nice to have the natural fragrance in the air that the herbs provide. This week the garlic chives and fennel seed heads are peaking.

The first is a wonderful garnish for just about anything you make cook with your share this week. Pick the small flower heads off and sprinkle on some potatoes, or over the tomato and cucumber salad.

The fennel seed heads are something new to the share this year. We grow the herb fennel for its spring leaves and fall seeds. Eat one like a breath mint. They have a wonderful and powerful taste---the original Altoid.

This is such a great time of year to be cooking. Having Parker Farms meat, Companionship bread, Goatsbeard and Skyview cheese, and our eggs and vegetables we are eating well. A large summer squash is like having a pound of pasta at hand. And nothing is much quicker than a sloppy joe of vegetables over bread.
