Bountiful Baskets, March 17

I've missed Bountiful Baskets so much!  And this week -- finally -- I was able to go back.  I got two baskets and a tortilla pack.  Oh, we've missed the tortillas.

Here is a picture of one of the baskets:

Here is what was in both baskets, combined:
  • two 5 lb bags of potatoes
  • two 1 lb bags of carrots
  • 2 heads of cabbage
  • 2 heads of some leaf type of lettuce
  • 3 heads of savoy (two green-purple and one white-purple)
  • 13 tomatoes
  • 4 English cucumbers
  • 2 bunches of scallions? leeks?
  • 17 bananas
  • 20 apples
  • 18 oranges
  • 2 canary melons  (the kids decided they are dragon eggs)
Oh, wow.  Just wow.  So what are we going to do all of this?  I'm not entirely sure.  Most of this is stuff we'll just use.  The fruit, potatoes, carrots, tomatoes...

The cucumbers will get sliced and dunked in ranch dip.  Then we've got salads, and maybe some stir-fry.

I'm so thrilled to have all this produce available again!

And this isn't a great photo, but here is a close-up of two of the salad savoy -- very different looking!

Your leafy lettuce type thing is romaine. I picked my basket up today too. ;-)

The one basket really looked like Romaine, but the other one had me questioning it.

And someone else told me that it is definitely scallions in the picture, not leeks.

Janet said...

They are right its scallions. Mine is definitely romaine.

I so wish we had this in my area.
What a great thing!
