We signed up for weekly produce deliveries from The Produce Box, and got our first box yesterday! You have two box options to choose from, then you can choose a "surprise" box, which is what we did. It had a head of romaine and leaf lettuce, 4 sweet potatoes, a quart of strawberries, a bunch of asparagus, a seedless cucumber, a bag of raw peanuts (which we'll roast), a sample of homemade salsa, and a recipe sheet. All the produce is from local farms.
I'm excited about this! I hope it helps us eat more fruits & veggies, be more creative with my cooking, and support local farms! I do need ideas of what to do with all that lettuce--salads, sandwiches, lettuce wraps? I hope we can eat it all! I'm bad about letting lettuce go bad.
On a side note, I have been excited to give Holly her first farm fresh ripe strawberry. She turned her nose up at it! (Well, made a face and threw it on the floor..hehe). DH and I will gladly eat them all. I'm not sure who this kid belongs to. :-)
Just thought I'd share!
