Mastodon Tuesday —


Dave goes through about a gallon of milk every week (for his tea) and he doesn’t like grocery store milk, so he’s been going all the way to Trader Joe’s every time he runs out. I decided there MUST be a milk delivery service in Portland, so I did a bit of googling and found several companies that deliver boxes of locally-grown organic fruit/veg, along with dairy and some other types of add-ons. I’ve been trying them all, and so far is the winner! We got our first delivery from them today, and it was a generous and well-assorted box of veggies and good organic local milk. Their website is easy to use, and you can give them a list of produce you don’t like — so we won’t end up with radishes anymore. They offer multiple sizes of veg boxes, fruit boxes, mixed boxes, and even “kits” like a salad kit (greens, tomatoes, cuke, peppers, carrots), stir fry kit, grill kit, etc. For our first order I got the one-person fruit/veg box (we don’t eat much), a salad kit, and Dave’s milk. We got SO MUCH produce! A cauliflower, three heads of lettuce, a bunch of purple carrots, a box of golden cherry tomatoes, several roma tomatoes, a small box of blueberries, half a pound of cherries, two zucchini, a bunch of bok choi, a couple apples, a couple oranges, and two big onions! Next week I’ll skip the salad kit. Maybe tomorrow I’ll make a lovely stir fry with the bok choi, onions, zucchini, and carrots!

Felt good this morning but kinda moldy now. Headache, nausea, general ick. Early bedtime for me.

    That produce delivery service will be a big boon to you! When the kids were little I splurged on a milk delivery service. It was SO nice, and you could also get yogurt and eggs and butter, so it saved me from having to make a run to the store on fussy baby days.

    Yes it’s a wonderful service! I’ve gotten veg box deliveries from several different companies in the past. I enjoy the surprise, and the challenge of coming up with ways to use what I get!
