Here is a sort of break down:
-Produce and perishables: $200
-Reimbursing Shannon for seeds and cleaning supplies: $20
-Reimbursing Berkeley for gas: $10
-Containers (hopefully $10 each!): $50
= 460 / 13 = $35 + a bit extra for farmers market stuff....?! and taxes...? total of $40.
Now, I think that with the bulk food and getting the CSA stuff, we can keep weekly food down to $20-$25.
Be creative! I suggest http://www.yummly.com/recipes/#q= or epicurious or one of the many cookbooks.
On the squash--the delicatas may be ripe (the little ones with green
stripes and ridges), but I was hoping they'd get a little bigger.
Maybe not, though, so maybe we should go for 'em. Don't take the
butternuts yet. They're still greenish.
