Many families find the medium package is a good size.  It really depends on your eating habits though. You always have the option of changing to a smaller or upgrading to a bigger basket throughout the season if you find that you are getting too much or not enough vegetables.

5. How do I make my choices?
The vegetable pick-up is “market style” so you select the vegetables you want from the seasonal vegetables that are available when you come to collect them every week.  We will be sending you an e-mail before each pick-up with an approximate list of vegetables that will be available for that week.
