Last week me and Anthony discovered something great we wanted to take part in. Our community has a program called Plan B Organic Farms. Basically you buy a share of fruits/veggies and they deliver it to you from local farms. What you will receive is random and changes each week. You can order weekly, or biweekly and have the option of adding eggs to your basket for an extra $6. We chose the "small box" weekly for only $25. A small box includes 10 items and is said to be fit for 2 people. I love this idea! Whenever we go grocery shopping, we never buy fruits or veggies unless we need one specifically for a recipe. I feel like this will help us or me...eat more fruits/veggies and maybe even try some I've never had before.
This weeks box included:
I can't get over how perfect our first box was! We enjoy each item that was given to us and I have a feeling we will eat it all up before next week. I am already imaging what I can make with these items. I had a pear before bed last night and it was delicious. I haven't had a pear in years. I think this might become a regular Tuesday blog entry as we get our boxes every Tuesday!
Check out the website http://planborganicfarms.ca/ I am sure your community has something like this too! And what a great way to contribute to local farmers directly.
