notes on the share

Both the onions and potatoes will last for a few weeks (or even months under the proper conditions) so keep them stored in a cool, dry, and dark place.  The green bean crop is beautiful this year, so enjoy a full 3/4 lb share this week!  If you can't eat them all now, you can blanch them (drop them in boiling water for a few seconds) and freeze them in ziplock bags. 

Garlic chives are delicious chopped finely into scrambled eggs, and I love making salad with chopped scallions, dried cherries and toasted almonds this time of year!
