This is the third week in a row for fennel in the CSA box.  Fennel is a new experience for me.  I*m a convert.  In addition to the delicate licorice flavor, it looks a bit like a small person with hair.  If it arrives in the box next week, I will do a fennel skit with it before dinner.  Fennel is a versatile vegetable.  I*m a fan.

I am rather fond
Of the feathery fennel
I find every week

Not the fronds so much
But the very fine timbre
Of crunch, then anise

Floods – no – flows - no -faint
Whispers licorice hidden
In salad: surprise!
