What to do with them? How to Store? Recipes below!

carrots – what a summer delight. We've been enjoying our raw, with dip.

(store in a bag in the fridge)

beets – these beet fritters look good.

(Remove greens up arriving home, leaving 1” of the stem on the roots, store in the fridge)

scallions – check out this spicy scallion salad. or these potato scallion and kale pancakes. or maybe these grilled scallions.

(store in a bag in the fridge)

basil – we gave you the whole plant so that you can make pesto! It freezes well. Store your basil in a mason jar with water in the bottom, on the counter.

garlic – there is more where that came from, so enjoy now!

(store on the counter)

lettuce mix – you know the drill! Store in the fridge.

white turnips – wondering what to do with those turnips? See below, or check out this recipe round up - 18 recipes!

Last week we made this quick pickle recipe with snow peas, cucumber and turnip. We used 1/2c white vinegar, 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar. They are delicious!

(If you aren’t going to eat them right away and want them to last in your fridge, we suggest cutting the greens off and storing them separately. They can leach moisture from the roots. Store in a plastic bag in the fridge)

zucchini – there are so many zucchini recipes that we want to try. Like this zucchini caesar salad. this zucchini rice and cheese gratin. this creamy zucchini pasta. this linguini with capers and zuc. this zucchini butter. this grilled zucchini ribbons with pesto and beans.

(store in the fridge)

kale – we've been looking at this chickpea and kale shakshuka and also this one pot braised chicken with kale and white beans.

(store in a plastic bag in the fridge)


cucumber – eat them, they're delicious! We put some in a tuna pasta salad today, the perked right up.

(store in the fridge)
