Greens and Things Delivered

Overall I’ve been happy with the produce from our local co-op.  However,  it is a pain to run down to the pick-up location in the middle of Cutie Pie’s nap time.  If the pick up hour was a little bit earlier or a little bit later, I’d be all set.  But the 1:15 PM to 2:15 PM window is pretty much the worst possible time for us given Cutie Pie’s napping schedule.

So, I did a little research and found a local organic produce supplier who delivers to my door for only $5 more than I’d been paying!  And they have a convenient website from which to order!  I gave Greens and Things Delivered at try this week and was super happy with what we received on Tuesday.

The only issue I had was the huge window they gave for delivery.  It was basically all day.  If I left a cooler with some ice on the front porch and my payment under the welcome mat then I did not have to be home to accept the delivery.  I love that!  Our produce arrived at 6 PM though.  We were home so we didn’t need to leave the cooler full of ice on the doorstep after all and we didn’t get to have the produce for lunch or snacks.  But, hey, they deliver and it was awesome stuff.  I really cannot complain.

Here’s the list of what was in this week’s box:

green aparagus (CA)
collard greens (Lady Moon Farms FL)
fancy zucchini (MX)
cucumbers (MX)
green leaf lettuce (Lady Moon Farms FL)
box of grape tomatoes (MX)
2 hass avocados (CA)
fuji apples (US waxfree)
bananas (Ecuador or Columbia)
green bartlett pears (Argentina)
navel oranges (CA)
strawberries (FL)

    I’m wondering how many clever titles you’ll be able to come up with concerning your fruits/veggies! LOL! I am going to go do a search for some co-ops in my area though, right now…this just seems like such a great thing! Have a nice weekend!

      Ha! I was wondering that myself… I’ll probably stop posting about my adventures with produce since it’s kind of a boring topic.

      I hope you find a good produce co-op! I’ve been really pleased so far. It’s like Christmas on Tuesdays when I get my box full of fruits and veggies.
