Here is a photo of ONE of my baskets:

All together, my three baskets contained:
- 5 huge green peppers
- 5 bunches celery
- 12 yellow onions
- 3 five-pound bags of potatoes, plus an extra 5 potatoes
- 14 tomatoes
- 3 watermelon
- 23 bananas
- 13 bartlett pears
- 3 pineapples
- 3 boxes strawberries
I can say that just last night, Dale suggested that we truly 'do' baked potatoes, since we have an oven that works. So that is one thing that will happen -- I'll be baking potatoes.
Oh, and I swung through Safeway to price stuff out. I just haven't felt like weighing what I got. Just the price per unit stuff though (the 5 pound bag of potatoes, the watermelon, the pineapple, and the box of strawberries) came to $12.50 per basket. I clearly got more than $2.50 worth of green peppers, celery, onions, extra potatoes, tomatoes, bananas and pears.
