Bountiful Baskets – 10/8/2011

9 Oct

Well, I didn’t get time to go through the produce section to get prices for last week’s basket.  Last week just got away from me.  I will try to get this week’s basket priced out, but we’ll see.

This week I got the conventional basket for $15.  Here is what we got.

Red, seedless grapes – 1.90 lbs
Pineapple – 4.35 lbs
Gala apples – 2.08 lbs
Apple pears – 1.36 lbs
Plums – 2.25 lbs
Limes  – .77 lbs
Bananas – 2.68 lbs
Strawberries – 1 lb
Broccoli – 1.58 lbs
Carrots – 1.13 lbs
Yellow squash – .78 lbs
Cucumbers – 3.23 lbs
Romaine lettuce – .64 lbs

My friend that picked up my basket for me gave me a few things that she knew she wouldn’t use: acorn squash, fennel, Poblano peppers, and jalapeno peppers.


Note: The weight of food may vary from another basket because of volunteering and because of variances in how the ends of produce cases are distributed after everything has been distributed evenly.
