What a hoot! This week, they are telling us that, for sure, what we will get will be different from what they say. They say to check back for daily updates. In my experience, there have been no updates. So…. what they are saying is that we might get anything in the box.I am totally cool with that. I just hope it is not all lettuce (I ate lettuce last night, and I realize that I really really really do not like lettuce – based on what I see in the trade box, a lot of people do not like lettuce – I ate lettuce last night because I could not trade it for something else because the trade box was full of lettuce – Okay, so I will go earlier so that I will get to the trade box before all of the other interesting things are gone, traded for lettuce.)
Here is what they have said: THE SHARE WILL DEFINITELY CHANGE FOR EACH DAY OF DELIVERY THIS WEEK. Please check back for daily updates!
TUESDAY VEGETABLE SHARE Red Onions – 3 pieces Green Peppers – long and bell varieties – 3 pieces Zucchini – 1 piece Parsley – 1 bunch Carrots – 1 bunch Lettuce Mix – 1 bag Purple Potatoes – 2lb. bag Surprise Veg!
FRUIT SHARE 1 bag UFO Peaches
I am looking forward to the surprise of the box.When I have volunteered, I have seen the surprised, excited faces of people when they open their boxes – people look really happy to see what is in their boxes. I remember the first year of our CSA, when the box contents were always a surprise. I can go there. ‘Twould be nice to know in advance, so I could gather recipes, but…. hey! I signed on to a surprise box the first time…. I can live with a surprise box now. I know how farms work, and I read farm news, even though I am a city girl.
