Last weekend we tried something new that I wanted to make sure and post about here on the blog- Bountiful Baskets!
You've probably heard about it or tried it yourself already, but it's a food co-op that operates in several states across the west. You pay on-line for your produce by Tuesday night, then on Saturday at the time and place you selected, you go and drive through to pick up your basket. Each basket is $15 and you definetly get more than that worth of produce! It's half fruit and half vegetables and there are other options you can select too, like bread and granola.
I was unsure of what to expect, but was so pleased with everything! The whole process was slick and hopefully it will work out that I can volunteer next time. Last night we had the best salads with almost entirely what was in the basket. In mine there was:
One pound strawberries
Two pound bag of grapes
One pound carrots
6 ears of corn
One head of romaine lettuce
Wow, huh?! We will definetly be trying this again in the future. There are all sorts of locations and you can learn about it and get involved yourself at bountifulbaskets.org!
