From time to time, the Small and Large Vegetable Shares have the option to receive one or more “Choice” vegetables. These are items that are in addition to the selection of items everyone gets in the weekly take. This week, a variety of Choice vegetables are on offer for both Small and Large Shares where Small receive one Choice item and Large receive two Choice items. Once you’ve selected your items this week, check out these tips on how to best store them for longevity.

A few more ideas from Korean cooking to use greens, garlic scapes/garlic chives, scallions, and whatnot!
- A Korean-style fish stew (similar to the chicken stew with greens in this week’s newsletter). Note that this can also be made with leftover grilled, broiled or baked fish fillets: just add the fish at the very end of the cooking time and heat gently to warm it.
- A side dish of cucumber and garlic chives, from Aeri’s Kitchen.
- And also from Aeri’s Kitchen, a snack: garlic chive pancakes! (Think scallion pancake, but with garlic chives instead).
