Here's my yield from Waltham Farms CSA this past week...
Picking 8 items from the selection, we chose:

1/2 lb. tomatoes
Small bunch swiss chard
2-3 fresh onions
5 pickling cucumbers
(2 or 3) regular cucumbers
3 small heads of lettuce
1 bunch golden beets
2 Asian (long, skinny) eggplants

Did not pick garlic, braising greens, zucchini

Also pick-your-own 1 pint green beans and assorted herbs.
