so, for the last month or so, I’ve been getting fresh produce delivered to my door from mother nature’s organics. so far, I’ve been very impressed with the quality and variety that I get. I especially like that you can see what will go in the box, and if there’s anything you don’t like or want more of, you can go to their website and make substitutions…
so this week, I saw that they had corn on the list. we love corn, especially micah, and the standard amount was 4 ears. that’s not enough. so I went down the list and found something I didn’t want (I think it was mushrooms) and clicked on the drop-down list of possible substitutions and clicked on corn.
the last time I did this, I saw that corn was an acceptable substitute for something I didn’t want, so I selected it. it said “1”. wasn’t sure if that was 1 pound or 1 serving or what, but it turned out to be 1 ear. what the heck was I supposed to do with one ear of corn? so I figured this time I was safe because I already had 4 coming to me, and even if it was only 1 ear, we’d be covered. for whatever reason, there wasn’t a number listed with the corn, so I really didn’t know how much I’d be getting.
apparently, the appropriate amount of corn to substitute for some mushrooms is 13 ears… I don’t know if this was a glitch or if they just have a LOT of corn right now, but that’s what we got.
so there you have it. I am currently the proud owner of 17 ears of corn.
good thing we like it!
