1 bunch green lettuce

1 bunch carrots

1 bag grapes

2 pears

1 box cherry tomatoes

3 bulbs of garlic

1 cantaloupe

Again I really don’t have much to share about this box because it was just so wonderfully easy to eat raw! I did enjoy having the carrots back since they haven’t been around in a couple months. They were every bit as delicious as I remember the farm carrots being, and I ate them with hummus.

The only thing in the box that needed cooking was the garlic. I really don’t know how 2 people could possibly go through 3 bulbs of garlic that fast, so I do still have quite a bit of garlic left. Thankfully garlic keeps well. I did use some in making some garlicky rice last week, but I will just have to keep working through it slowly.

It has been just about a year since I signed up for this delivery service. I don’t regret it at all, and I would recommend it to everyone. If you’re someone who likes to go to farmer’s markets and pick out the best produce, then that probably works better for you. I get no enjoyment out of that. I’m too lazy to go to those markets, and I’m too indecisive to figure out what I want to buy. The box is such a great compromise. It lets me eat what’s local and in season while making it easy for me to plan my meals around those items.

I peeked ahead at the box that will be coming later this week. It looks delicious!
