You know what today is! What’s in the Box Wednesday! It was another one of those ‘blah’ weeks for the CSA box. It seems to be a trend now. I was not thrilled about any of it. A lot of the same old stuff, and I’m kind of over it. Mr. Curly Fry picks it up for me each week since they picked the worst time ever for a pick-up time for my location (11am – 2pm – I guess they don’t think people work during the day?). At any rate, I had him leave a bunch of items in the Swap box this week that I did want. He said that everyone else had the same idea because the swap box was full of the same crap.
There are a few items I will use like the Onions, Broccoli, maybe the Garlic, and the Squash. As for the Pickling Cucumbers…really? 3 TINY little cucumbers. What am I supposed to do with those? Seriously…what was the point of them giving me 3 tiny ones? What a joke. If I knew there were so few of them, I would’ve put them in the swap box too.
THE BOX: (* means it’s not pictured because it’s in the Swap Box)
1 Bunch Fresh Yellow Onions – Certified Organic – Crystal Springs Farm
1 Head Green Cabbage* – Certified Organic
1 Head Broccoli – Certified Organic
1 Bunch Green Kale*- Certified Organic – Life Enhancing Acres
1 Bunch Fresh Red German Garlic - Certified Organic – Liberty Branch Farm
1 Bunch Gold Beets* – Certified Organic – Organic Willow Acres
2 Yellow Patty Pan Squash – Certified Organic – Plum Hill Organics
1 Bag Pickling Cucumbers – Certified Organic – Taste of Nature
Kale…again. Really? I’m so over it. There may have been one or two weeks where we didn’t get Kale. And do you remember how I was jumping for joy those weeks? But it’s in this week’s box…again. So now it’s in the swap box with everyone else’s.
And we have more Beets. Yuck. I don’t care if they are red or gold, I don’t want them. So they are in the swap box as well, along with the Cabbage.
1 Pint Blueberries – Certified Organic – Little Buck Organics (Sourced from Hammonton, NJ)
1 Jar Red Raspberry Jam - Certified Organic – Oak View Organics
1 Bunch Rhubarb* – Transitional – Country View Produce
I’m getting tired of Blueberries because I think we’ve gotten them every single week so far. And week after week they go in my freezer for Smoothies. I’m not complaining about them yet, but if I keep getting them week after week I will get sick of them.
I can get down with the Raspberry Jam because I LOVE raspberry jam. Although I still have that Strawberry Jam in my fridge that I haven’t opened yet.
Rhubarb…really? I was getting Rhubarb with my Vegetable Share before, and now I’m getting it with my Fruit Share. I feel like I’m getting ripped off. I still have the rhubarb in my freezer from the bunch of times I got it before. So this rhubarb went straight into the swap box (with everyone else’s).
HUGE thumbs down for this week’s box. I thought it was supposed to get better?!
