Just in time for St. Paddy’s Day and the arrival of spring on Sunday, this week’s box bursts to life with beautiful spring ‘greenery’—from green cabbage and leeks to Red Russian kale and kale rapini, plus garden-fresh herbs and a blooming shamrock plant to enliven your home. Complementing this bounty are all the ingredients for an Emerald Isle-inspired feast: hearty Irish sausages, imported cheddar cheese and soda bread kissed with raisins and caraway seed.
