Saturday was a nice day to be on the farm! I enjoyed helping the farm staff at the pick-up and meeting some of you as you picked up your shares.

I made a quick stir-fry meal out of much of my share and thought I would pass along the idea since it turned out pretty well and used a lot of this week's bounty.

I chopped some garlic scapes, hakurei turnips (sliced), turnip greens, collard greens, arugula. In a medium pan, I sauteed the scapes and turnips for a few minutes, then added the greens. I splashed everything with some soy sauce and rice vinegar and cooked for a few more minutes. Towards the end, I added some chickpeas and raisins, which helped to balance the meal, and a little sesame oil, for a little extra flavor. Yum!
