Organic produce delivery – First shipment

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.

The shipment:

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.
