Slightly funky asparagus $2.84. I couldn't pass it up!



Great looking broccoli $0.84.



More awesome broccoli, still only $0.84.

Grand total, just $4.52.

I had to trim around some of the asparaugs, but most of it was great. And all the broccoli rocks!

it's a good deal financially, but nutritionally and energetically? Those asparagus look lifeless, and if you eat lifeless veggies, you can't expect them to have the vital nutrients and energies of fresh, healthy looking veggies. And, why buy fresh asparagus out of season anyway? Stick with freshly frozen until April when we have a fresh supply! Concentrate on winter greens like kale and brussel sprouts that love the frost! There's your bargain!

I am happy to get a variety of veggies and fruit all year. No vegetables are seasonal in the winter in the northeast. Brussel sprouts are no longer local and just eating frozen does not appeal to me since veggies are the main dish as far as cooked food. I would however be hesitant to get reduced broccoli and asparagus because they are so perishable. We got lots of bananas, apples, oranges, grapes and even took a chance with a few tomatoes. The broccoli, asparagus and kale I get in the vegetable store.

I would not be afraid to eat the asparagus. The stems look dry, but the tops look like they would steam up nicely. Even if you throw half of them on the compost it is still a bargain.

I don't know what is seasonal anymore. Most of the produce available around here was grown a thousand miles away, or in another country.
