note about this weeks boxes:
I wanted to let you know that this weeks boxes I had planned on having green beans. However, upon opening the boxes of beans I found that they were not worth bagging up. For the half share I only had fruit to put in that place. So, you may find you are a little heavy on fruit this week. But boy... those peaches are worth it!
For the full share and half veggie It just happened that I had Bob pick up just enough baby bok choy extra "just in case" I had run low on beans (the sheet said I was nearly 5# shy... but why buy a whole 30# case for that?)... so, I ended up using the 'just in case bok choy' to replace the beans in those larger and veggie only boxes. You will also find this really neat veggie, Kohlrabi, in the half veggie and full share boxes. Please google recipe ideas for it. It was Bob's idea and he just LOVES it! :)
Now for Next Week:
I have several deals to tell you about that I just found out about myself and have incorporated them into the shares. If you are interested in getting more of any of them please let me know as quantity is limited and I will need to have Lynelle make sure to have what we need on order for us.
1) Avocados - 1# bags of small green avos. There are approx 4 to a bag. Each 1# bag is only $2.
2) Green Curly Kale. These are small tight bundles of curly kale. Only $1.25 each. see attachment
3) Cauliflower. According to the photo I would say these are a mid sized head? $3 each. see attachment
4) Jumbo... 15" around according to my sewing tape measure! HUGE Star Ruby Grapefruit. The ones I have here are so big that in order for me to use the juice press with them I have to quarter them! LOL They are $1.50 each
I also have some standard sized Star Ruby Grapefruit at $1 ea. :)
For the boxes....
So far I am planning the below boxes. I wanted to let you know in case you wanted to pick up anything on top of your box so that you would have an idea on what is planned and not get too much of something. Keep in mind... things may change as the weekend progresses due to availability, however, I am not planning on changing the kale/cauli/avos and grapefruit unless absolutely necessary. :)
