A new box from Timber Creek

I received my latest delivery from Timber Creek Farms this morning. I love how I am early on the route and am home when they deliver, so I don't have to put a cooler out. I can get it unpacked into my fridge and not have to worry about the stuff freezing on my porch.

Here's today's bounty.

TCF is now doing something called The "Boxer Series," which is a series of boxes of fruits and vegetables geared toward specific health problems. I ordered the osteoporosis box and got a ton of "new to me" stuff like collard greens and kale.

They have boxes for anemia, arthritis, asthma, cancer, cardiovacular, diabetes, fibromyalgia, high blood pressure, menopause, osteoporosis, weight management, and prostate.

I didn't know how much I was going to get in the osteo boxer, so I added a few things to my order. When will I learn? I added leeks, minneolas, 2 different kinds of cheese, beets, a clamshell of spring mix, and grape tomatoes. The osteo box contained kale, collards, chard, garlic, apples, oranges, pineapple, avocados, broccoli, strawberries, cabbage... My fridge is a wall of green inside again.

Now to figure out what to make with it all!

It's not easy bein'green...Good for you! How about making juices? I have never done that but it popped into my head when you asked about what to do with all this "good" stuff. GOOD LUCK!

Hi Lynn - I thought the same thing at first, but I don't have a juicer and really don't want to buy one LOL

I have a couple of vegetarian cookbooks that I am sure will yield something yummy.

do they deliver to NYC? ;-) looks like quite a bounty--you can make all kinds of wonderful things and then freeze them. or collard greens for breccies!

Unfortunately, they're local to northern Illinois and Indiana :-) I tell you, though...I love using them because their produce looks great, unlike the nasties in the store.
