What’s in a share?

We aim to include an average of 10 items per week–usually no fewer than 5 and in the bountiful months as many as 16. Everything is packed into an insulated shopping bag, measuring 13″ x 8″ x 14″ tall, labeled with your name. Every member has two bags; each week one bag is taken home full of goodies and the previous week’s bag is left for me to refill the next week. In the early spring, the bag might only be 2/3rds full, but in the summer, it will be bursting at the seams, and there will often be a second (recyclable plastic) bag of greens as well.
