What's in the Veggie Box?

Recently, a neighbour of mine told about Rick and Deena's Fruit & Veggies, a produce delivery service in my area. I have been looking for CSA boxes in Chilliwack but couldn't really find much. Most were quite expensive and it didn't seem like you got much for your dollar, so I held off and continued to shop at the market.

Once I heard about Rick and Deena, I thought I would give them a try and see how it goes! Today we found our box sitting on our back porch. What was inside?

Golden Delicious Apples

Spinach
Roma Tomatoes
Bananas

All were clean and fresh looking, and non required much in the way of prep. I brought it in the house and unpacked, chopping up the broccoli and sorting through/de-stemming the spinach so that it could all go in the fridge. In fact I think I took more care than usual, which is interesting.

Do you get a CSA box? What do you like best about it? I felt like it was Christmas, and seeing what was packed in there made me excited. The funny thing is I already had quite a bit of produce, so now I have SO much I'm not sure what to do with it all.

Thus, here on Chasing Tomatoes you're going to hear about what's in my CSA box and what I'm doing with it. I have NINE bananas. Will we eat them all, or will I have to come up with something? What about all that spinach?  Instead of how I used to write-finding recipes and then buying ingredients to make them, I'm switching things up. Instead I'm going to look at the produce I have, and figure it out from there.

This could make for some really interesting food blogging.

Do you get a veggie and fruit box delivery?

PS.. I apologize that I've been so lame about getting comments going here. Promise to have that fixed by the end of the week!
