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

carrots – Don’t forget that the carrot greens are edible too, so why not add them to the greens meatlessballs recipe or make some carrot top pesto!?

(remove the tops from the bottom and store in a bag in the fridge)

beets – beets are an amazing vegetable, both the roots and the greens are edible, both raw and cooked. The roots have a sweet, earthy flavour and become sweeter when cooked. The greens taste a lot like chard and can be used the same way. We like our beets steamed or boiled and served up warm, however they're good cold too on a salad.

This sparkling beet lemonade looks good. So do these milk-braised beet greens. Or use the tops in this wilted greens with coconut milk.

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

basil – it's pesto season! and it freezes well. Use up quickly!

(store in a glass on the counter with an inch of water the bottom)


dill – another soft herb that should be used up quickly. Chop it up and freeze it if you aren't going to use it right now.

(store with the basil)

garlic – ahh the first garlic of the season <3 don't bother saving this, there will be more. A lot more.

(don't store, eat it!)

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!

(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)

kale – massage your kale! Especially if you're eating it in a salad, raw. Note that kale freezes really well, so you can save it for later for soups or smoothies.

(store in a plastic bag in the fridge)


cabbage – shred and make a salad or slice in half and grill!

(store in a plastic bag in the fridge)


radish – the last of the season!
