Bountiful Baskets: October 13

It is so much fun to go volunteer with Bountiful Baskets each week!  This week was no exception.  And a very yummy basket to boot.

Doesn't that look good?  It included:
  • a head of leaf lettuce
  • four big baking potatoes
  • three acorn squash
  • a pineapple
  • eight bananas
  • a bag of grapes (plus I got an extra bag for volunteering, which isn't in the photo)
  • six lemons
  • five apple pears
  • ten itty bitty adorably cute pears of some sort
Because our site didn't sell that many baskets, we did not get celery or grape tomatoes.  Hopefully we can get our numbers up just a bit.  But with adding a B week, too many people like me are cutting back.  Instead of ordering three baskets every A week, I'm ordering one or two each week.

Nothing in here that really requires me to do any planning.  Most of the fruit we will just eat.  I'll make lemonade from the lemons.  Potatoes and lettuce just get used as part of normal everyday life.  And we'll turn the squash into a veggie dish at dinner probably twice (because a friend gave me hers, knowing she won't use them).

I also got an enormous box of granny smith apples.  That might take a bit of planning, but for the moment, we are just going to eat them too.
