Local Goodness

YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY

K so I’ve been meaning to do this but never had gotten around to it.  Most cities have a harvest box where they have a box of vegetables at a bargain price.  Look on your cities website to find your local one.  Anyway, last month I signed up for one but they made a mistake and didn’t order any boxes.  So today I finally got mine!!!  Ooooo I was excited.

K I got 2 bushels of spinach, 2 bushels of radishes, 6 tomatoes, 8 peppers (red, orange, yellow), 10 apples and 2 cukes. All for 16 bucks. Not too bad.

The farthest this food has traveled is from the Okanagan!  Which is like 4 hours away from us.  It also came with a newsletter telling us where each item came from and some cool healthy recipes for some of the veggies.  Very cool.

yum.

I love the idea of doing this.  It’s so much more earth friendly than to buy from non local places.  Helps your own economy too.  Wooot.

Anyway, figure out where your nearest harvest box is and tap in to your communities resources.

And THAT’S my story!

  1. eah, don’t you mean two bunches of radishes and
    two bunches of spinach? My word! Two bushels of each would take over your kitchen.
    Love, Gram

  2. In our weights and Measures chart, a peck is eight quarts, and there is four pecks in a bushel (32 quarts). That would be an awful lot of spinach and radishes. Gramps

    1. I love you a bushel and a peck and bushel and a peck and a hug around the neck, a hug around the neck and barrel and a heap, a barrel and a heap and I’m talkin in my sleep about youuuuuuuu.
