- Dill: Your dill this week is more mature than the previous distribution, and your bunch may even include some flowering heads. These are easily used as you would less mature dill and are particularly great for pickling.
- Fava Beans: Warning– There is a rare genetic deficiency that affects some people and can lead to health problems if they eat fava beans. This condition is relatively rare and usually detected by childhood, but if you have never eaten fava beans before we recommend you check out www.g6pd.org to learn more.
- Potatoes: This week you are receiving 4 pounds of Bintje potatoes. These are an all purpose yellow skinned yellow fleshed variety, especially good for roasting or making frites. As we allow your potatoes to size up the fields there is always some chance for small cosmetic damage. There is a possibility over the season you may see damage from wire worm or scurf and the damage is usually to a small portion of the outer skin which can be easily peeled or cut off.
