The closest thing we have to a CSA

When we moved to town, I looked around to see if there were any farms nearby that had CSA shares. There weren't any (but there are two farmers' markets this year!), but there is a co-op called Bountiful Baskets. Each Monday you can contribute $15 for a basket and then pick it up on Saturday. The number of baskets is limited and last week they were all spoken for within 10 minutes. It was great shades of registering for classes back at Case using SOLAR.

Anyway, Josh picked up our basket yesterday while I was in Huron and he sent me a picture.

2 head of lettuce, 6 tomatoes, potatoes, onions, broccoli, celery, 2 mangoes, strawberries, pineapple, mini watermelon, and bananas.

This is seriously the best produce we've seen since moving to Pierre, and the most affordable. I completely understand why the baskets are claimed so quickly.
