If you haven't heard of this co-op, you have to look them up! (www.bountifulbaskets.org) You make a 'contribution' to the co-op with your credit card, usually on Tuesday or Wednesday, and the next Saturday get to pick up a laundry basket full of fresh fruits and vegetables. The basic basket is only $15 and I've found the quality to be excellent. Today I went and picked up my basket. Here is what was part of one basket.
It included bananas, celery, sweet potatoes, butternut squash, brown pears, baby carrots, spinach, oranges, apples, broccoli, pummellos and tomatoes - and probably some stuff I'm accidentally leaving out. :)
I also added a 5 loaf pack of 9-grain bread, a 3 loaf pack of cinnamon raisin bread, and a 4 loaf pack of rye bread. All excellent! The bread added $21 to my total cost for this contribution. I spent $36 on what you see. AND, we got pummellos - I've never had a pumello. We're trying new fruits and veggies and eating healthier since starting Bountiful Baskets. YEA!
P.S. Never mind my 2 year old in the background of the photo holding toilet paper. LOL! He was using the packages as 'cars'!
