who knew?

There are other things going on in my life. I promise. I'm reading lots of different books, enjoying summer cookouts, and seem to be seeing a new superhero movie just about every weekend. The farm box is just so much fun, though!

The best find from last week was this recipe for beets. Never thought about beet latkes, but I suppose you can grate any root vegetable you please, and of course everything tastes better fried. Delicious and pretty on a plate.

And this week's box just arrived!

Cucumbers disappear rapidly around here, whether in a chopped salad with feta and tomatoes, or raita. Green beans, too. But yellow beans are something new -- are they the same as wax beans?

Of course, Epicurious to the rescue with a handful of delicious-sounding options. And according to Google, you can pickle them, too. The Swiss chard is already crying out for garlic and olive oil. And the pattypan squash might need the same treatment.
