I selected:

lettuce
chard
carrots
zucchini
yellow summer squash
cucumber
cabbage
green bell pepper
yellow beans
garlic
tomato
jalapeño

All packaged and ready to refrigerate. I cleaned some of the lettuce and vacuum sealed it in a jar for salad. The rest I left whole for things like sandwiches. The garlic sits out on the windowsill to dry for a week before going into the 55°F cooler. The tomatoes go into the 55°F cooler right away. The beans I tipped and tailed and blanched for 2:30 before chilling and vacuum sealing. Everything else was just cleaned and put in zip-lock bags.
