Remember, there is still one more box coming before your next monthly payment is due as there are five Sundays in the month of  May.
OK, now I am guessing that one or two of you are thinking, “what the &*$%^& is kohlrabi?”
Well, its that little bunch of sputnick looking things. Do not be afraid , these things are very tasty and there many ways to eat them. The easiest way is to slice the bulb portion and put in your salad mix but here is a link with a variety of recipes to choose from http://simplyrecipes.com/recipes/kohlrabi/
The broccoli are young tender shoots so don’t throw away those stems. You can just cut off the very ends and eat the rest.
Here is a recipe that calls for four items from your box : potatoes, kohlrabi, onions, avocado
