This week will see not one, but two deliveries. The Produce Box is starting its season and our membership with Carolina Grown has been processed. We’re going to get all of our vegetables ans fruits from The Produce Box and order meats (and a couple of other items) from Carolina Grown.
The Produce Box Order
It appears that we’re starting off the new season with a bang. Plenty of choices this week, making the process a bit hard. Watching our food budget and looking at possible meal items, we decided this week to go ahead and order the garden box ($17). It has plenty of items while the portions are designed for a 1-2 person household. This week’s box include:
- Romaine Lettuce
- Vidalia onions
- Sweet potatoes
Carolina Grown Order
This is a new program for us, so we went ahead and ordered a variety of stuff to see what the quality will be like. Here’s our ekectic order:
- Strawberry cheesecake ice cream (pint)
- Three cheese and roasted garlic ravioli
- Chipotle ginger marinated trout fillets
- Pork Chorizo Sausage
- Whole chicken
Thoughts on Buying Local
How many of you signed up for a CSA program this year? Which one and why? If your season already started, what have you ordered?
