Summer CSA Week Four

It's garlic scape season!  Scapes are the young stalk of the garlic flower that we harvest this time of year to help the garlic plants put their energy into making big bulbs instead of flowers. Scapes look like bright green curlicues, and are garlicky and delicious.  They make an excellent spicy pesto, and are sweet and tender when cooked in a stir fry or tossed in oil and grilled. 

This week we also hope to have our first zucchinis and plenty of peas to go around.  We have Sugar Snap peas (the pod is edible, sweet and crunchy), purple and Oregon Giant snow peas (great for stir fry or snacking), and shelling peas (the standard peas for shelling).
