Bountiful Baskets: September 7

Today was a pretty amazing basket.

What I got in my one basket:
  • Romaine Lettuce
  • a whole lot of broccoli (a lot more than it looks like in the photo)
  • four cucumbers
  • three yellow squash
  • six roma tomatoes
  • one honeydew melon (that is much bigger than it looks in the picture)
  • one mango
  • nine bananas
  • seven plums
  • a 3-pound bag of pears, plus two more
What will we do with this?
  • The pears, plums, bananas, melon, tomatoes and lettuce will just be eaten.  No planning needed.
  • I'll be roasting broccoli to go with dinner
  • I'm making pickles with these, plus some other cukes
  • The mango will probably go into a smoothie
  • The yellow squash will be a side dish or two at some point this week
I also got a huge box of bicolor corn, from Olathe, CO.  Most of that is going to be frozen, but we will undoubtedly be eating corn on the cob a time or two or three this week too.
