Notes from the farm:

Swiss Chard – Try this in a frittata for a simple summer supper.  With a Lettuce salad on the side, of course!

Zucchini – I’m loving this with pasta right now.  Or in place of pasta?  Your choice!

Parsley – Love the fresh flavor with bean salads and cukes!

Scallions – Try the recipe this week for grilled scallions.

Kohlrabi – A perfect summer appetizer when peeled and sprinkled with sea salt.

Basil – Whip up another batch of pesto this week.  It freezes like a dream!

Cucumbers – Bring on the sliced cukes!

Beets – Roast them and serve in a room-temperature salad.  Try this week’s recipe.
