    Default Bountiful baskets....wow!!

    I just participated for the first time in bountifulbaskets.org which is a co-op for purchasing veggies and fruit. The pick up for my area is 5 minutes from my house and what I received was amazing!!

    The standard basket, which was $15 + $1.50 for a handling fee and a $3 basket fee (which is a one time only fee when you start) included:

    Green onions
    Small sweet multi colored peppers - a bag FULL
    4 Anaheim peppers
    2 english cucumbers
    Bananas - rather green so will need to ripen for a bit
    2 bunches of asparagus
    Pineapple
    Kale
    Head of romaine lettuce
    Small bag of carrots
    5 mangos
    6 oranges
    13 apples

    I also puchased the added on Asian theme veggie pack. That was an additional $8.50. This bag included:

    bok choy
    napa cabbage
    green onions
    2 yellow onions
    garlic
    thai basil
    fresh ginger
    8 fresh chestnuts
    celery
    Sugar snap peas

    I would encourage anyone that is interested to visit their website and research if they are in your area. Bountiful Baskets rocks and I am hooked!

    I recently participated twice. The produce both times was subpar and more expensive than I could have bought shopping sales. I thought the first time was just an off week but the second time was half rotten. I tired contacting them about it and was utterly ignored.
    I wanted to like bountiful baskets but for us, it was a bust.

    I was totally impressed too. I most certainly will do it again. The produce was lovely and much much more than I could buy in the store for that price. very pleased. Do you get that I liked it?
