Would You Spend $26.45/wk (Groceries Post) **PIOG
On a box of vegetables delivered once per week for 6 months, 5 lbs of fruit delivered to the same site for 5 months, and 10 large boxes of single items (your choice) to preserve
The catch being you have to pay about
$1800 $1,364 up front as a one time payment?
Even if it meant that these purchases could meet all of your family's fruit and vegetable needs for 12 months?
~~ The weekly box and fruit box are intended to meet the needs of 3 to 4 adults
To Clarify - "one time payment" - I get my produce through a CSA (community supported agriculture) program. I pay "my" farmer once, during the winter, when he needs to buy supplies for the coming season. I then get a "share" of his crops over the course of the growing season. The particular farm I buy from has been organic since the 60's. It's VERY organic, LOL.
Math: Fruit share - 380.12 (10% off regular price due to when I purchased)
Weekly produce share + "preserve share" option - 984.30
= 1,364.12 divide by 52 = 26.23
My apologies. It had been awhile since I worked out the figures
Today's Pick Up:
2 big bags of spinach, 2 small heads of lettuce, 2 pint bags of rhubarb, 2 heads of garlic, 1 bundle beats, 1 bundles green onions, 1 bundle cilantro, 1 bag snow peas. Tucked uvder the cilantro is a 2 lb bag of navy beans. Fruit share consisted of a bag of apricots and a bag of sweet cherries.
To answer quality concerns - I did find 2 apricots in the bag with minor bruises. Husband is taking them to work for breakfast in the morning. There are a few slightly wrinkled cherries also, which will be included with breakfast for myself and the kids tomorrow. None of the vegetable is damaged in anyway. No bruised lettuce or spinach (although very gritty, I soaked the spinach for 30 minutes in cold water before taking the stems off and bagging for the fridge).
