Our box is definitely getting heavier as the weeks go by .. they are spoiling us! I’m excited about the cucumbers for salads, and my boss is going to try a cucumber cold soup. We had so many between the slicing cucumbers and the pickling cucumbers that I had to bring some into work. The colleagues are not complaining Seth is officially addicted to kale, and excited about the beets. Parents threw scallions in with the roasted vegetables on the grill and it gave it some great flavor.
In other news, there is some talk going around about the Lehigh Valley Food Co-op. On their website there is an amazing amount of information, including the annual fee ($75) and drop off site (Center Street in Bethlehem for us). The product list for June is extensive, and I think some further investigation is necessary. I’d be into it for the meat & dairy components, since Season’s Harvest is already providing my vegetables.
Feel free to leave your thoughts on the bounties of food cooperatives .. I’ll report back with product list vs. grocery list – an experiment to see how well the price tags match up.
