I went to pick up my co-op produce basket. This week they had a new location that was really close to me. So that means a new buyer for the location. So I was looking forward to finding out what she was going to be buying. Ok. here is what I got for $15..

1 huge bag of salad.(more then enought for a weeks worth)
4- plumbs
4- oranges
6- GS apples
4- head of broccoli
6- bananas, still green :)
1- cantalope
10lb bag of potatoes
1lb strawberries
head of callifower
pint of cherry tomatoes

I also opted for the asian pack (7.00)
ginger root
4 head garlic
1 boc choy
1 asian type cabbage head
thing of mushrooms
bunch of leeks

Then I got a case of GS apples 40lbs for $12.00 . We are going to make some apple pie filling and can it for later.

But the score was being the last one to come and pick it up. The had leftovers. I got a whole case of broccoli, 4 more cucumbers, another bag of potatoes and some oranges. After spending 2 hours cutting and blanching the broccoli I now have 6 huge bags of frozen broccoli!
