New on the list this week is pea shoots and sunflower shoots. If you’re new to these shoots, they’re both edible fresh, including the stems and tendrils. They’re a tasty snack on their own, and also make a great addition to salads, stir fries, or as a garnish on pasta or really any other dish combination you’re curious to try. They’re packed with nutrients, and the pea shoots have a much milder, sweeter flavor, while the sunflower shoots have a strong, nutty flavor. You can read more about pea shoots here.
Otherwise the list looks the same as last week. We are watching the fall crops grow everyday. They were growing incredibly fast last week, but the recent cloudy weather has slowed them down. The baby arugula, bok choy, mustard greens, and kale are all on the cusp of being ready, and should all be on the list next week.
