This week's box from Lancaster Farm Fresh Cooperative included:

1 Head Green Romaine Lettuce - Riverview Organics
1 Bag Pea Tendrils - Eastbrook Produce
1 Pint Strawberries - Healthy Harvest Organics
1 Bunch Green Kale - Life Enhancing Acres
1 Bunch Garlic Scapes - Misty Meadow Acres
1 Bunch White Scallions - Outback Farm
1 Bunch Collard Greens - Sunrise Ridge Organics

I'm really excited to try the garlic scapes and pea tendrils -- both of which are new vegetables for me. Here are a few recipes I've got my eye on:


The strawberries were too beautiful to not try immediately. I opted to use up a few in a sweet and savory crostini recipe.
