I finally got my rhubarb and strawberries!! I also received corn, english peas, garlic, beet leaves (seriously, where are the beets?) and a head of iceberg lettuce that I threw away because I'm not really a fan. I don't have anything against iceberg, but I'd prefer to just use of the rest of the spinach and romaine that I already have in the fridge. More nutrients.
But let's talk about the beet leaves....I'm so confused. I was at the store when Jake was picking up the box. I asked him if there were beets because they was listed on the website and I'd already planned a recipe around them. He said there were no beets so I picked some up. I got home and compared them. They are EXACTLY the same, but one is missing the actual beets. Where did they go? And what am I supposed to do with the leaves? I guess I'll google it later. I'm sure there's something that can be made from them.
Everything looks beautiful. Especially the strawberries. FYI, if you only buy one type of organic produce, it should be strawberries. Apparently they retain more pesticides than any other fruit or vegetable.
Confession: I still buy non organic on occasion if they're on sale.
