This is a sample from a previous organic basket!
Today we decided to get an organic basket of produce again from Bountiful Baskets. As the springtime continues into summer, we will probably not be getting very many baskets from Bountiful Baskets co-op in the summer and fall months we actually find better produce values at the local farmer’s markets and even in the grocery stores that buy locally. But until then, I was really excited to pick-up Rhubarb really cheap! We haven’t had Rhubarb for a long time. My grandparents use to grow this in their garden and we had an abundance every year for many years. I miss Rhubarb, and so does Alex. He mentioned it a few weeks ago and I looked at the grocery store to only find it at $2.99 per lb. I passed on it then, so I was happy to see it as a cheap produce option this week!
They have many options, but we just did the $25 organic basket and the Rhubarb for $32 plus the $1.50 fee.
I should have started Rhubarb seedlings, but I guess I need to get it on the list for next year! 😉
Here’s what I ordered for Saturday’s pickup:
If you want to see if they are available in your area too, then…
Head to Bountiful Baskets HERE and choose your state and then a pick-up location closest to you from the drop-down menu.
If Bountiful Baskets is not in your state yet, either contact them to see what they need to start one or keep watching for them to open up in your state too! They are rapidly growing and rapidly opening other states. We have been fortunate to have been the first state and so we have been able to do this for quite some time!
*Please note, you only have until tonight at 10pm PST to order your produce for this week for pick-up on Saturday at a local location!
Also, to fully understand what we are talking about, you do need to read this article HERE.
