whats in the bag - September 8, 2011

6 Idaho potatoes - these can make a meal in themselves! this blog post explains

6 Vidalia onions - try this onion tarte - it is unbelievable!

2 big heads of romaine

5 freshly picked Paula Red apples - really tasty and unique

5 green bell peppers - these do not last around here, but they do freeze well

quart of prune plums (little plums) - will be ripe in a day or so, perfect for kid lunches and quick grab fridge snacks, we might cook some down into a jam

bag of sugar snap peas - my kids eat these up raw - but I love them in stir fry

4 peaches - leave on your counter for a day or two to ripen

6 plum tomatoes - insane prices this week, the Florida crops will not be in for another month and the hurricanes have decimated northern crops

3 beefsteak tomatoes

rosemary plant - plant now and use all fall and winter

see you next month!

Fall 2011 update

I hope you had a great summer! It seemed wildly busy for us. But, we are back!

This fall we are trying something different. We are so busy (homeschooling 3 kids!) that we are only going to be able to do produce once a month. I hope this will still work for many of you. The schedule is below.

The bags will be bigger than ever - I will try to include many long lasting root vegetables and things like interesting varieties of apples and pears, as well as the usual lettuces and tomatoes. The bags will be $30. This is a crazy bargain. Have you seen produce prices lately? Outrageous!

If you are trying to maximize your fresh food intake  - this is the program for you. Think of it as a challenge: to eat all the real, whole food in your bag and ensure your good health through the busy fall season.

Thanks for your support!

here are our delivery dates:

September 8
October 13
November 17
December 15

I will still send out reminders the Tuesday before, but if you are a regular, you might want to jot the dates on your calendar.

It is really helpful if you prepay (paypal to I spend way too much time trying to collect money from people who forget to pay.

So, if you are ready for next week - let me know!
