  • bibb lettuce — make a nice big salad, or make asian lettuce wraps and use the ground pork or beef below.
  • sweet potatoes — Mark Bittman has a super easy sweet potato coconut pie
  • honey crisp apples – slice and add to your salad
  • beets – I love the Moosewood Restaurant recipe for borscht. Its vegetarian and delicious. Mom and I pass this back and forth whenever we have beets.
  • Rutabagas – roast or mash
  • watercress – this is a hardier variety, so perfect to braise or sautee. Rinse well it grows in sandy soil.
  • spinach — the ultimate comfort food – Italian Wedding Soup – and use the ground pork/beef for meatballs
  • brussels sprouts – these are on the big side, so perfect to pull off the leaves and roast, and toss with salt, or cut into slices.


  • Sausage Craft — assortment
  • Polyface ground beef – sliders, or the Mark Bittman easy meatloaf from a few weeks back
  • Fleetwell Farms ground pork
