So, we picked up our first bag of produce last week. I didn’t know what to expect, so the kids and I drove to our pick-up site with much anticipation. My four-year old kept asking, “What is going to be in the bag? Will there be cherries? Will there be apples? Will there be cake?” The endless barrage of questions is nothing new when you have children, but I kept telling him that it would be a surprise every week. We were going to have a surprise bag of food every single week!
