Every other Monday we get a big box of vegetables delivered to our door, and each time it feels like Christmas to both the kids and the adults in our family. After five years of basing our weekly cooking on whatever Sydney’s garden produced in abundance, it helps keep us in the habit of cooking to use up whatever’s handy, and we’re always surprised by the contents of the box. Recently, the kids have been getting a hand in things, too. Katherine always lays claim to the tomatoes when she spies some, and she helped me shuck the corn in the last box. Nathaniel, meanwhile, is very fond of the squash, since they’re one of the few items I think might survive his attentions, and he was delighted when we had a whole box of them delivered last week.
