Bountiful Basket #1

I found a produce co-op that has a pick-up place fairly close to us.  It is called Bountiful Baskets.  I thought I would try it out since there are no long term commitments and if I didn't like it there was no obligation to return or money lost on something I wouldn't continue with.  I like that you can place an order when you want to.  The sign-up to order your basket is a short period of time, so you do have to plan ahead a little to make sure you place your order early enough.  There are only a limited number of baskets available at each pick-up point, so you may have to sign up as soon as possible to get one.

This is what I received this weekend.  I ordered an organic basket and an Italian Veggie Pack.



Included was: cantaloupe, red and yellow onion, garlic, parsley, basil, oregano, rosemary, eggplant, zucchini, raspberries, broccoli, corn, mangos, romaine lettuce, red kale, arugula, bok choy, carrots, peaches, apricots and tomatoes.

I also went early and volunteered.  I have 2 cantaloupes because someone didn't want one and I traded some radishes to her that someone else hadn't wanted and I took.  I had fun and was impressed with what we got, so I will probably sign up for another basket soon.  I also received a box of mushrooms, but knew we wouldn't use them all so I gave them to someone else who mentioned she likes them.
