Pleasant Surprise

I was not expecting green beans in our CSA box this week. (We were supposed to get cucumbers.) It was a pleasant surprise. I would have ordered them instead if that had been an option! Fresh green beans always remind me of helping my Mom and Grandma in the garden when I was growing up in Wisconsin.
