Cheap Produce

Cali gets a bad rap for being expensive. Which it can be. Like owning a house. But some find owning a house overrated, so to each his own I guess. Besides our amazingly blue skies and sweet temps 89% of the time, we have other perks. Like awesome produce. Let me give you a rundown:

3 bunches of green onions
2 red onions
2 white onions
head of red leaf lettuce
6 ears of corn
head of romaine lettuce
bunch of fresh spinach
2 italian squash
1 cucumber
bag of shredded lettuce
1 1/2 pounds of nectarines
3 packs of strawberries
pack of blueberries
pack of raspberries
container of mushrooms
4 pounds of grapes
2 mangos
1 1/2 pounds of tomatoes (salmonella free)
2 3/4 pounds of apples
bag of carrots
1 lb of apricots
2 1/3 pounds of cherries
1 pineapple
1 watermelon

all for $36. Made my day, and my house is full of fresh eats.

WOW! That's awesome. If I estimated correctly, all of that produce would have been around $80 (if not more) here. Kind of jealous, actually. ;)
