Today was our first day of produce co-op with the new pricing. It went well. We had lots of new members....and lots of new things for the children and I to consider when sorting. We ended up not having enough of the single shares set aside.....but I had ordered 4 shares so went down to 3. A lot of new variables to learn. LOL
Here is a $15 share from today
Here is a $28 share from today
I've realized a few things. I have to get enough for the single shares, but not too much for the double shares..... 2 pineapples every week or 2 bunches of celery every week won't go well for our doubles - those will be every other week.....2 heads of lettuce on the other hand is fine with our doubles so we can get those weekly.....and other cases we've been avoiding because of the large shares may now be options (tomatoes, cucumbers)....because there are more folks getting little amounts....but that means the case would be split more ways and more manageable.....
Anyway - that's what I did today. ::Snort:: The broccoli we were given was awful. I took it back and asked for our fresh box off the truck. They gave me a case of strawberries because they gave us the wrong box....that works for me. ::snort:: It wasn't enough to split with co-op and since it was free and not paid for by co-op $, and since I don't get paid for my gas, I kept it. Yeah - more smoothie fruit in the freezer. LOL
