Produce is impacted by shut down farms
For fresh fruit, we have a ton of apples, some bananas, grapes. This happens every year at this time, as we eat seasonally and locally whenever possible. Not wanting to spend much more this month (and it's only the 3rd!), we'll move to stored goods.
So, moving forward this month, I'll be getting creative as far as any salads go, and will turn to my frozen, and dried varieties of fruits/vegetables as well as my stored, cupboard goods:
assorted vegetables: green beans, waxed, corn, creamed corn, spinach, mixed veg, beets, baked beans
Pantry closet goods: roasted peppers, assorted canned beans, canned pineapple
Many, many pints of organic, CSA local tomatoes. I ended up with approx 60 pints, a year's worth I expect.
