Here is the fruit portion of my bountiful basket order for March 9th, 2013. It included 4 lemons, 1 container of strawberries, 10 bananas, and 3 mangoes. I donated the mangoes to someone else, since I’m allergic to the oil that is on their skin. (The oil in the skin of mangoes is in the sumac family.) 4 of the bananas were extras because the kids and I volunteered this morning.
There were a lot of green veggies in the vegetable portion of our basket. There were 2 heads of bok choy, 1 bunch of salad greens, 1 bunch of radishes, 4 green peppers, 1 head of celergy, 2 heads of garlic, and 2 bunches of asparagus.
Here is the fruit and veggie portion of our basket together. This cost a total of $15 (plus an additional $1.50 for processing every week).
This is the Thai add on pack. It cost $10.50 and it included a coconut, 1 head of napa cabbage, 2 lemon grass, 1 bunch of green onions, 2 limes, 1 container of mushrooms, 1 head of garlic, 1 piece of ginger, 1 bunch of basil, 1 bunch of cilantro, 2 carrots, and 1 bag filled with a few dozen chile de arbols. I’m making coconut shrimp curry tonight. Yummy.
The juice pack was an extra $8.00 this week, and as usual, it seems to be a pretty good deal. There was 1 bunch of celery, 2 carrots, 3 lemons, 2 limes, 1 piece of ginger, 3 apples, 1 cucumber, 1 bunch of swiss chard, 1 bunch of parsley, and 1 beet with attached greens.
Here is my entire order with everything. Today’s order cost me $38.50. Sorry for the blurry picture, the 4 year old was attempting to use me as a living jungle gym as I was taking it.
And last but not least, here is the obligatory baby rabbit photo. All 6 are doing well, they look more like rabbits than rats now, and their eyes are starting to open. It’s really, really, really hard to tell the sex of baby rabbits, but I *think* we have 3 boys and 3 girls. Don’t hold me to that though.. I’ll update you in a few weeks when I found out for sure. Don’t they look happy?
