Until Thursday I'd forgotten how exciting it was last summer to get the produce pack, kind of like a weekly present. It made cooking and eating vegetables a little more exciting. There were times when my reaction was "another cabbage?? seriously?" but Keith and Nela at Simply for Life went through the same thing and have promised useful cabbage recipes or really recipes for whatever comes along!
For those of you who live on the East Coast of Canada there's no need to explain why the produce packs are starting late this year but for everyone else, we've had the most lousy, cold, horrible Spring. There was a major blizzard April 1st. Seriously. So the growing season has been slightly delayed. That meant that we were warned this first pack would be minimalist but that it would be made up for as the summer progresses. We shall see.
|The pack was very clean and tidy but didn't really give much away.|
|Lots of leafy things in tidy bags. I so love tidy!|
|Now this I love. I have to admit last year I sometimes stared at things|
asking myself what it was. This makes me feel less stupid!
|Romaine, Spring Garlic, Radishes|
|This little fellow came along too. He was returned to the great outdoors.|
The food isn't the only fun to be had. Sadie and Trilly both enjoyed the box though Trilly wasn't much pleased about sharing and I had to intervene eventually.

|Sadie wondering if there was room enough for two.|
|Trilly says "No there isn't any more room in here".|
