The pre-season subscription is 3 deliveries every other week from mid-January till March. Because it’s supposed to last two weeks, there’s more stuff. Instead of a bag, we picked up two boxes today! I am very, very happy to have some produce to play with again.

Here’s what was in our boxes.

1-21

  • Green onions (14 oz)
  • Cane syrup (16 oz)
  • Green spinach (15 oz)
  • Bordeaux spinach (22 oz)
  • 5 grain bread (17 oz) – We had to eat a chunk first!
  • Collards (27 oz)
  • Red Russian kale (23 oz)
  • Daikon radishes (16 oz)
  • Apples (34 oz)
  • Sweet potatoes (12 oz)
  • Herbs

Oops – forgot the eggs! (more…)

12-17extra1

  • lettuce
  • butternut squash
  • apples
  • walnuts
  • duck eggs
  • catnip sock

I can make an argument for the lettuce, squash, and apples as staples for the coming weeks, but the walnuts, duck eggs, and catnip sock are just splurges. Merry Christmas to me!

Duck eggs are said to taste richer than chicken eggs. I guess duck embryos need more fat to develop right. But I’m not sure what’s best to do with richer eggs – how to get the most bang for my duck. Richer scrambled eggs? Richer pound cake? I’ll have to dig around and see what people say.
