Basically, it works like this: You pay a monthly membership fee, then pay for fresh produce (and whatever else you want, but so far we’ve only tried the produce) and they deliver it in a wooden crate on your doorstep on Sunday mornings.
It’s all fresh, local, and organic!
So, 6:00am Sunday morning, when I was taking the dogs out, THIS was on my doorstep along with my Washington Post!
Check out what was inside!!
Broccoli, lettuce, kale, lemons, potatoes, a sweet potato, brussel sprouts, carrots, tomatoes, bananas, baby bok choy, a butternut squash, a mango and a red onion. Phew! I think I got it all. I do not think we will be ordering anything this weekend, because we are still working on eating all of this stuff!
It is happily tucked in the produce drawers of my fridge, and that makes me very happy. A full fridge and a full pantry make me very happy. We are so very blessed!
I am so stoked because I have a goal of totally changing the way we eat this year to a healthier, more natural, organic diet. Phase one was meat. Thanks to the Springfield Butcher, we eat almost exclusively local beef, pork and chicken now. *Note- that also came from a Groupon! Yeah!
Now, with Arganica plus local farmers markets will be opening for Spring/Summer soon (fruit!) that will complete phase two. Dairy will be next, then grains. I’m excited about these changes!
