Bountiful Baskets The First!

Anybody out there heard about Bountiful Baskets?  I will give you a little info here but if you want to know more then go to http://www.bountifulbaskets.org for the full story and they also have a Facebook page where you can get some more info.  Bob’s friend Sean (Hi Sean!) told him about it so we decided to check it out.  Here’s how it works (the quick version):  you go on line Monday morning to their website and request your basket and pay your $15 then on Saturday at a specified time (for us it was 6 am) you go to the specified pickup site in your area with something to put all your goodies in such as a couple of reusable shopping bags and pick up your “basket.”  Here’s what we got today for our $15 (it changes every week):

3 tomatoes

3 red pears

6 nectarines

5 bananas

1 pound strawberries

1 big bunch red grapes

3 butternut squash

1 bunch broccoli

7 carrots

1 bunch red chard

1 head iceberg lettuce

You can order other things also such as bread and variety packs (they had a 4th of July pack of watermelon, blueberries and strawberries which now I’m wishing that I ordered! and the other pack I remember was a dip pack with things to make a dip with then things to dip in the dip).  I encourage you to go to their website and read all about it!
