Bountiful Baskets and Danielsville Co-op

I joined Danielsville Co-Op this week. It is affiliated with Bountiful Baskets. For $15 you receive a basket of fruit and veggies. You never know what you are going to get. In this week's basket I got the following- 7 peaches, 5 plums, a pineapple, 2lb grapes, 2 mangoes, 4 bananas, huge head lettuce, great looking broccoli, 6 very large carrots, 6 red onions. There was a baby watermelon too but I gave that to a friend.

Huge carrots!

Gorgeous peaches!

The carrots were so large my friend only needed one to make a three-layer carrot cake. I made roasted veggies, peach cobbler and broccoli quiche. Tomorrow I’ll grill the remaining peaches and the plums.

It is a huge amount of food, and very cost effective. And the food is GOOD. $30 is my weekly budget and so the $15 is half which is consistent with the food I get at the store, half of my budget going to fruits and veggies, but I got so much more with this $15 than I do at the store. The grapes alone would have been $5. You don’t have to buy every week and they ask you to work at the co-op only once every 6-8 weeks.

It is a good deal. Check out the Danielsville Co-op on Facebook or Bountiful Baskets to see where a co-op near you is. They have them in many states.

Ooooh that looks good! No Bountiful Baskets near me though. But husband and I have a small garden. God does bless us with many tasty veggies.

Unfortunately this year, our new resident bunny thinks the veggies are tasty too. Boo, you silly bunny, go eat clover and grass!
