Last week Eric and I flew up to Seattle to meet up with his parents and extended family. We took a ferry up to the San Juan islands and also rented some kayaks to paddle around. It was a really quick trip, but we had a great time with Eric’s extended family and great weather up in the outskirts of our country.
1 cucumber 1 bunch broccoli 1 Gravenstein Apple 1 Valencia orange 4 Bartlett pears 4 red pluots 1 box mission figs 1 pound red potatoes I sadly don’t have much to say about this box again, because we were out of town and also home with company for a lot of these 2 weeks. The box got sort of pushed aside. I did eat most of the fruit, the cucumber, and the broccoli. The figs… (more)
This box brought me… 1 mini watermelon 2 red pluots 3 peacotums 2 valenica oranges 1 bunch carrots 1 pound heirloom tomatoes 1 bunch lettuce 1 bunh rainbow chard 1 ear bi-color corn You all probably just said, what the hell is a peacotum. I know I did. It’s a weird little fruit hybrid of a peach, apricot, and plum. I ate them, but I wasn’t a huge fan actually. I wouldn’t say they had… (more)
We have been wanting to go camping again this summer, but with our few free weekends it appeared that all the campsites were already booked by people who plan farther ahead than we do. We lucked out, though, and found an option over on Mt. Diablo in the East Bay which was a location we hadn’t actually been to yet. Perfect! We both ended up being off work that Friday so we were able to… (more)
Oh my goodness, I need to get back on track here. I missed putting up a box post a while ago. I got thrown off due to a 2 week vacation where I actually cancelled a delivery that was scheduled to come while we were gone. So for some reason the one just prior to that never made it on here. Unfortunately, since then my camera has been wiped clean and any photos I had… (more)
Went up to Lake Tahoe for a friend’s 30th birthday. Rented a boat and went out on the lake with a wakeboard.
I have lots and lots of photos this time to make up for last time! I got… 1 head of lettuce 1 bunch of kale 1 bunch of carrots 1 pound of potatoes 2 valencia oranges 6 flavorosa pluots 2 white peaches 3 yellow nectarines 1 globe eggplant It’s that kind of season. Yum. I thought it could be fun to show you what happens to this stuff after I photograph it. It all gets… (more)
1lb butterball potatoes 1 Eureka lemon 3 Valencia oranges 2 Yellow nectarines 1 bunch carrots 1 bunch chard 1 head lettuce 1 box blueberries I truly have nothing to say about this box. I ate all of it. Most of the time during this box’s lifespan we were out of the house either hiking or traveling across the country so there wasn’t much time for creativity anyway. Here is the one other food photo I… (more)
This Memorial Day there were no trees that needed to be hunted down. Instead we planned a long weekend to use our brand new backpacks! The drive from San Jose up to Snow Mountain Wilderness on Friday afternoon took a lot longer than we expected. Holiday traffic made getting out of the Bay Area pretty bad, and then the last 2.5 hours of the drive were on 25 miles of unmaintained gravel and dirt roads…. (more)
Is it box time again already!? I feel like I just did this… 2 oranges 1 hass avocado 1 box of strawberries Half pound of german butterball potatoes Shallots 1 bulb fennel 1 stalk rhubarb 1 bunch radishes Pretty good haul this week! Not a lot of ready to eat items, so that’s always fun. I did eat the oranges for lunch at work, and I cut the avocado on top of a side salad… (more)
Just a half an hour from us is Castle Rock State Park. This is a very popular rock climbing spot due to the crazy rock formations and great access. We didn’t rock climb there this weekend, though Eric has in the past. We planned a 6 mile hike this time. It took us through a lot of different views and terrains. There was a lot of manzanita, some running creeks, a few young redwood groves,… (more)
1 head of lettuce 1 bulb fennel 1 bunch carrots 3 shallots 1 avocado 3 valencia oranges 1 box strawberries I really truly have very few photos of this box. It just wasn’t that interesting. I ate the carrots, strawberries, and oranges raw. The avocado I put on some tacos I believe, but I didn’t take any photos of our taco night this time around. The lettuce went into our regular salads. The only things… (more)
