Farm Box Confession: I Am A Selfish Wife


For the third week in a row, I’ve gotten fresh strawberries in my farm box. And, for the third week in a row, my husband doesn’t know this. Why? Because I’ve eaten all of them before he’s gotten home (and composted the evidence).

When it comes to snacks, I have no scruples. I mean really. If my husband wanted ice cream for dessert, why would he ever leave that quart container in the freezer where I could find it? Oh, he really wanted that cinnamon roll? Well, why didn’t he write his name on it?


The really terrible thing about my selfish snacking is that my husband would give me the last bite of his birthday cake. He always buys me an Mexican popsicle when he’s out shopping because he knows how much I love them.

I am a selfish wife.

In addition to the (now missing) strawberries, this week’s farm box contains 3 Navel oranges, 1 head of cauliflower, 1 Haas avocado, 3 shallots, 7 yellow carrots, 1 bunch of Dinosaur kale, and 1 tiny head of red leaf lettuce.
