In Illinois strawberries are in season in June. I remember last year when I took my son strawberry picking on July 1st. It was the last day of the farm’s season. Strawberries have come and gone, but at least I have pictures. They were tasty and they did not go to waste. Strawberries do not keep for long so we have found that we have to eat them up within the first couple days. I made strawberry pancakes one day, but we just ate them as snacks or in fruit salad.
I can always find a use for onions. They are a staple for us.
I find this kind of kale to have a bitter aftertaste when I eat it raw. It starts out delicious, but then something else creeps in and all of a sudden I’m grimacing. Same thing happened when my mom tried it. I’m always bashing this poor green.
Our CSA is Tomato Mountain. This week we received: Strawberries, Green onions, Vitamin Green, Rainbow chard, Lettuce, and Red Russian Kale.
