Bountiful Baskets Co-op

Today Carl went and picked up our first basket of organic foods from the co-op. I was very excited about getting involved in this. Well, this is a picture of all of the food we got, except 1 plum which I had to feed to Charlie. We paid $27 for all of these fruits and veggies, all organic. Does this seem like a good deal or not? Carl and I were both expecting to get a lot more than this. But I dont know if this is good for organic produce since we dont usually buy it.

I will say that all of the food is in very good shape and very ripe and smelling wonderful! The plums are really sweet and the strawberries are YUMMY. Im excited about using the lettuce and tomatos for salads. Im not quite sure what I will do with all the red onions or sweet potatos, or the kale. Time to set out on my internet recipe finding adventures! If anyone has any ideas on great ways to use up this stuff, let me know!

I'm on the same page as Sherri, I would say that's a pretty good deal for Organic!
