This week we’re still checking out Green B.E.A.N. Delivery, which delivers organic, locally grown, and other high-quality vegetables to your home.   This week we’ll be enjoying:

  • (6) Organic Pink Lady Apples
  • (1) Organic Asparagus Bunch
  • (1) Organic   Broccolette Bunch
  • (1) Organic Red Chard Greens Bunch
  • (1) Sustainably Grown Red Leaf Lettuce
  • (1) Organic White Button Mushrooms (10 oz.)
  • (1) Organic Yellow Onion
  • (6) Organic Navel Oranges
  • (1) Organic Klamath Pearl Potatoes (24 oz.)
  • (2) Organic Strawberries (16 oz.)
  • (1) Organic Grape Tomatoes (1 pt.)

Last week, the quality of the vegetables and fruits was amazing.   I’d never find that quality at a grocery store near my home.   Two weeks later and the few vegetables we have left over are still good.   It was the biggest asparagus I’d ever seen and even my vegetable-hating husband mentioned that it was out-of-this-world delicious!   We’re waiting after our deliver tomorrow to see if we’ll continue and I’ll let you know.

Can we stay frugal and fit the expense of organic and locally grown high-quality vegetables into our budget?   Is it worth it?   We are seriously considering it.
