Total: $108.63

36% of my items were organic

I still have to hit the specialty store for local eggs and dairy-free chocolate chips . That should be $5 more.

Next week or the week after should start our delivery of Fulton Farms Happy Box. Fulton Farms is a local CSA farm who does home delivery all over the Dayton, OH area. We will get the Standard Small box, which will include local organic produce from the farm and a bit of organic produce from elsewhere to round it out. The Standard small box in $22/week, and has about 10-15 pounds of produce.
