What's in the box, 2/26/14 edition

Today marks the second to last week of the winter share period, which means that we're on our 47th week of the full year share.  (The weeks of Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's were skipped, as will be the week after next.)

During the winter, we pick up the boxes from the barn, stored there to keep the veggies from freezing outside.

In the box this week:

A green cabbage (at least it's not another red cabbage), pea tendrils, apples, watermelon radishes, shallots, Gilfeather rutabagas (an heirloom turnip),  carrots, and popcorn on the cob.

From today's newsletter:

And this week, we say good-bye-till-next-summer to a stalwart, winter-storage crop: cabbage. (I'm guessing that you'll be not-so-sad about that.)
Seems that I'm not the only one who's been a bit frustrated with the large weekly infusion of cabbage.  That said, I actually liked seeing the small green cabbage in the box, as I'd like to try the cabbage and ricotta timbale with green cabbage instead of red like last time.

Overall, a good box this week.
