WHAT'S GROWING ON--pretty much the same as last week. Try new things or repeat your favorites! 

Greens are spring items because they stay succulent and sweet in the cool weather. Cool weather crops are arugula, turnips, and broccoli. Garlic scapes are great sauteed with anything you want garlicky. Collards are a large tough green leaf, but there is a wonderful trick to tenderize them. Fold the leaf in half and then roll it up tight. Slice thin and it will turn to ribbons. Sautee lightly, they are done when they turn dark green. Turnips and kohlrabi are two crunchy crops that balance all the lovely green things. Peel the tough purple skin of kohlrabi and just slice kohlrabi or turnips and eat raw! They sautee nicely too.  Enjoy the bok choy raw as edible spoons, chopped in salads with a sweet soy-sesame dressing, or sautee with garlic scapes. Use tatsoi, which is Asian spinach, as you would common spinach. It is good raw, cooked, sauteed, ribbon cut. I like it better than spinach! My family enjoys big napa leaves as a wrap. Make some summer rolls in rice wraps with chopped napa, bok choy, scallions, lettuce and some added carrots, and a peanut dip. Delicious! What are you eating these days?!
