Week 3 of Our Organic Food Boxes

FINALLY - We Had Some Weather that Felt Like Summer!


Yesterday we finally had the third day in a row of sunny, warm weather here in Puget Sound. On Saturday Virginia and I rode the tandem down to Redmond, WA and back which is about a 25 mile bicycle ride. Yesterday we rode half way around Lake Washington which is probably a 35 mile loop. It was simply glorious weather to be out on the bike. It was sunny with hardly a breeze and the temperature hovered around 77 degrees. Perfect!!! And of course to top it all off, we received our 3rd organic food box yesterday which included some very nice goodies:

  • Apriums ( a cross between an apricot and a plum)
  • Rhubarb
  • Yellow carrots
  • Cauliflower
  • Broccoli Raab
  • Snow Peas
  • Rainier Cherries
  • Red leave lettuce
  • Raspberries

As you can see the head of cauliflower is HUGE and the raspberries are gorgeous. We ate 1/2 of them after macerating them in some Grand Mariner with homemade shortbread and whipped cream. Yummy!

Yellow carrots, rhubarb, the apriums, broccoli Raab and red head lettuce......it all looks good!
