Our first delivery from Capay Organic arrived this morning at our doorstep at 11AM. There were a few changes from the original list, which works out better in my opinion.
Strawberries (from Watsonville of course) look quite good considering the rain we have had this season:
Broccoli Rabe looked good – a few wilted leaves, but good:
Small zucchini – looked wonderful:
Avocados – perfect:
Carrots – tops looked nice but a few too many broken carrot bottoms for my liking:
Cameo Apples – perfect and delicious, no nasty wax on these:
Fava beans – overall good, but a few were bruised a little:
Lettuce – absolutely beautiful but with a couple of little stowaways (it’s OK, it’s organic after all):
Spinach – excellent quality:
Beets – brilliant:
So far our first shipment was a success. I would give them 4 out of 5 stars. If my carrots were in better shape I probably would give them 5 stars. Cooking will be lots of fun for the next couple of days, especially with the fava beans. They really are a special treat.
