Farm share week 9

In this week's box:
  • Cucumbers: 1.5 lbs
  • Corn: 1.5 lbs
  • Green beans: 0.5 lb
  • Yellow squash: 0.75 lb
  • Pattypan squash: 1 lb
  • Beets: 1.75 lbs
  • Lettuce: 1 lb
  • Kale: 0.75 lb
  • Wheat berries: 1.25 lbs
  • Basil: 0.5 lb
Excited to get fresh basil this week -- bought some tomatoes and fresh mozzarella to go with it! And it seems like every week we get a different variety of kale -- this week's has smaller leaves that are very thick, not at all like the big floppy leaves we've been getting lately. I loooove kale and never complain about getting it every week, unlike some things (I'm looking at you, lettuce).

This week's newsletter (PDF) included information on what to do with the wheat berries. (I've never had them before.) It sounds like they can be cooked the same way as any grain, and used in either sweet or savory dishes.
