That is two heads of lettuce, two heads of broccoli, 1 pound of sucanat, 6 oranges, 6 peaches, 1 apple, 1 cantoloupe, 1 pound of red potatoes, 1 onion, a container of blueberries and a container of strawberries. All of it was organic and some of it was locally grown.
Yes, I did like the idea of buying organic and loved the idea of buying local grown food. However, it has been two days and all that remains are 3 peaches, 1 head of lettuce, the onion, the sucanat and the oranges.
We ate the potatoes, broccoli and a head of lettuce at one meal. So for me spending $51 on that little amount of food just isn't going to work for us. Not when I already have to spend extra on specialty food. There are three of us that require special diets in this house.
Add to that the fact that my oldest eats like there is a hole in her belly. And she is skinny because she is so active. My almost 15 month old eats more than my 5 year old. So I cannot justify spending that much money on so little food.
I do however think it is a good thing. Buying organic, local food. And having it delivered to the house every other week. But it will not work for us, in this season of our life.
