Generally I don’t take a share of food on Thursday, but I sold my Saturday share to a new person who came on late and I had someone looking to try out half of a share on Thursdays–so I took half of a share today. Plus I took a fruit share today (it’s cheaper for me to buy it on Thursdays because when you have 3+ people buying fruit, the price drops).
So here’s what we got:
Half of veggie share (which does include some fruit):
3 small green zucchini (not horribly small–like not “dip in dressing as snack” small)
I got 3 because I evened out the odd number with a sandwich bag of mesclun greens
for the other person–who got 2 zukes
1 small bunch of kale (the other person got a head of lettuce for this)
1 head of broccoli (the other person got about 8 large carrots for this)
1 bell pepper
4 vidalia onions
1 large eggplant
1 bunch of bananas (traded for a small cantaloupe–like bigger than a softball, but not by a lot)
The full fruit share was:
(2) 8 oz. containers of strawberries
(1) 3 lb. bag of braeburn apples (2-1/2″ min diameter)
This is good because I’ll be away from Saturday night until very late Wednesday night and then we’ll get a full share that Saturday after I’m back. So there won’t be a lot of food to go to waste while I’m gone. We’re getting back into the swing of things–so you should start seeing our food change a little and not be so monotonous.
