winter csa, everyone! once a month pickups of veggies and eggs. the first pickup (january) consisted of the following:

1. the bounty
  • 1 bunch bok choy
  • 1 bunch arugula
  • 1 head savoy cabbage
  • 1 head broccoli
  • 1 bunch kale
  • 1 bunch cilantro
  • 7 pounds potatoes
  • 1 daikon radish
  • 1 lb broccoli shoots
  • 1 bulb garlic
  • 1 dozen eggs
  • 1 large butternut squash
2. cost analysis (comparison costs courtesy of freshdirect except where otherwise indicated):

veggies:
  • bok choy: $2.50 (csa estimate)
  • arugula: $2.50 (csa estimate)
  • savoy cabbage: $4 (organic)
  • broccoli: $4 (organic)
  • kale: $3 (organic)

  • eggs: $5 (farm price)

with 7 pounds of potatoes, how could i not come out ahead? (and they were all made into latkes, in case you were wondering)
