Here are vegetables we will plant and grow especially for you in 2020
Sweet Thai Basil
Sweet thai basil is widely used throughout Southeast Asia. It has small, narrow leaves, purple stems, and pink-purple flowers. Its flavor is an anise and licorice taste and is slightly spicy. Its flavor does not change during hot and long cooking temperatures unlike other spices.
Traditional, or Genovese, basil is a variety of sweet basil that originates from Italy. Its leaves have a sweet, slightly spicy flavor and is *the* basil you find in many Italian dishes. When fresh, it has an initial peppery taste that quickly changes into a slightly sweet anise flavor. It loses its flavor with heat and if heated too long can become very bitter.
While traditional onion chives are extremely popular, we are willing to bet you will become addicted to garlic chives. Garlic chives have flatter leaves than chives. The flavor of garlic chives is a lovely, mild garlic. They are great for adding flavor to vegetables, cheeses and salads. They also have beautiful, white, edible flowers that have a stronger garlic flavor that is great in stir fries and other dishes.
The spicy microgreens are a colorful blend of red and green mustards with various textures. Their spicy flavor pairs well with the mild micro greens and will liven up any dish. They can add a flavor pop to salads and sides, or give meats and mild sauces a little kick.
This blend of mildly flavored microgreens contains mizuna, cabbage, kale, and kohlrabi. A wonderful garnish to salads, meat, and side dishes, they make a beautiful presentation. The coloring is mostly green with a touch of purple. With their subtle flavors, these microgreens won’t take anything away from the dish.
Chinese cabbage has a sweeter flavor than regular cabbage and can be used interchangeably. Chinese cabbage has high levels of vitamin C and K, folic acid, and antioxidants. It is great cooked as well as raw, making it a great choice for soups, salads, and stir fries.
