big brimming boxes

produce-boxesOur first winter produce pick-up day has come and gone without a hitch. We harvested at about 10 am (in contrast to 6 am market mornings), packed up the boxes midday, and distributed them 3-6pm. It was a great feeling to be harvesting produce specifically for individual people. We knew we needed about 42 napoli carrots, 21 yellowstone carrots, 12 chioggia beets, 9 forono beets, 70 chard stalks, etc. We took this list out to the field, harvested exactly what we needed, and at the end of the day we had no waste! What a contrast from the perpetual guessing game of the farmers market.

Here are a few pics of the produce that went into the boxes.

Napoli carrot bunches.

Napoli and yellowstone carrots–fat, skinny, long, stumpy.
