Basket and FarmBox Breakdown: 8/4/2012

10 Aug

I have been trying to get this written all week!  We took an end of summer “staycation” to a resort in Tucson at the end of last week into the weekend, and then we had to get ready for our big start of school this week, part-time preschool and full day kindergarten for my two darlings.  It’s been just a little busy here lately!  However, the wonderful thing about our “staycation”, was that there was a Sunizona Familiy Farms FarmBox pick up and a Bountiful Baskets site, each within 10 minutes from the resort.  How awesome that both these programs are flexible enough that I can pick up in other locations so I don’t have to miss out on my produce!

Friday afternoon was the pick up for my FarmBox.  I got some of our favorites and tried a few new things this week.

 

This week, I got 1 bunch carrots, 1 seedless cucumber (to make Refrigerator Pickles), 1 bag white potatoes, 1 Big Ol’ Beef  tomato, 1 zucchini, 1 head garlic, 1 6 pack burger buns (these were amazing!), 1 Sprouted Khorasan Plus bread, and 1 head green leaf lettuce.  This cost me $27.25.  I love how fresh this all tastes!  I am so excited that the FarmBox program is now delivering a little closer to me, and I’m still working toward bringing it to my city!

I kept things simple for Bountiful Baskets on Saturday, just getting a regular basket and honey whole wheat bread.  It was neat to get to see another site and how they run things.  Here is what was in the baskets:

 

I got cherries, plums, a Galia melon, bananas, blueberries, Romaine lettuce, cabbage, red potatoes, mangoes,  and peaches.

 

Note: The type and amount of food may vary from another basket because of geographic location and because of variances in how case ends are distributed once everything is distributed evenly.
