Tickled Pink

This week we received our first order from Green Bean Delivery. What is Green Bean Delivery you ask? From their website:

Green BEAN Delivery connects Midwest food producers with Midwest communities through its year-round home delivery service. Our direct line to organic vegetable producers and local artisans guarantees our members the freshest organic produce and groceries on the market.

They deliver fresh produce and other items to your door! This is the box they delivered in and it kept the produce inside nice and cool until we could put it away.


This is what the ordered consisted of:

1 Each Apple, Fuji
1 Each Avocados
1 6 oz. Blackberries Local
1 Pint Blueberries
1 1 lb. Carrots, Baby
1 1 lb. Green Beans, Local
1 Each Limes
4 Each Peaches, Yellow
1 10 oz. Peas, Snap -
4 Each Plums, Red,
1 24 oz. Potatoes, Red Local
1 8 oz. Spinach, Baby
1 1 lb. Strawberries


This is a green smoothie that consisted of blackberries, carrots, strawberries and spinach. Yummy!


I love sandwiches but I don't like all the calories that go along with bread. I have found another use for my kale growing in our garden. Kale wraps. This one is ham, cheese, hummus and kale. Yummy!


I finished my first BFF sock. I am tickled pink how cute this sock is.


Poo is getting older and sometimes he just doesn't get his body completely into the liter-box to do his business. A neighbor gave me an idea to use washable rugs under the liter-box. I had recently found a way to use cut up old t-shirt to make knit rugs. I solicited my Facebook friends for stained up t-shirts they wanted to get rid off to make a few rugs. I picked up this monster, size 19 and 47", needle to knit it with. YOZA that is a big needle you have there.


I started cutting up the t-shirts. Here are a couple of the "yarn" balls ready for knitting.

That's a nice delivery box. i tried joining a farm co-op, but the one place never got back to me despite, 5 or 6 e-mails and the other place the amounts were way too much for us, and they don't do half sizes :(

Those are some huge needles!!!
