Bountiful Baskets: October 6

We now have Bountiful Baskets every week!  Yay, yay, yay!

I only got one basket this week, plus a box of pineapple.

I need to get Dale to take the photos more often, huh?  He does a much better job.

Today's basket contained:
  • 1 head of leaf lettuce
  • 1 bunch spinach
  • 2 English cucumbers
  • 5 'things' of broccoli
  • 6 big russet potatoes
  • 4 beautiful red bell peppers
  • 1 huge bag globe grapes
  • 2 boxes of strawberries
  • 6 Fuji apples
Not much to say about using this.  Fruit -- we'll eat it.  Cucumbers will turn into refrigerator pickles.  Lettuce and potatoes and peppers are just basics that will get used without.   Broccoli and spinach would normally just get used, but we've had a lot of both lately.  I'll probably end up freezing them both for later.

The downside of a brand new location is that there weren't many baskets sold.  Hopefully that will pick up.  We didn't get grape tomatoes and I think bananas were the other item we did not get.
