Loot

Photobucket
Delicious peaches and figs not shown.

A friend of mine told me how to find a co-op for locally grown, organic food and I was SO EXCITED.


Every week I pick up a good sized crate of fresh-from-soil (or trees or whatever) produce and I wonder why I ever bought this stuff from a supermarket.  Prices on the pictured loot are competitive, dare I say cheaper than the store and they taste worlds better (the loot, not the prices.)

Don't get me wrong, I still enjoy frolicking in the farmer's market but this is so much more convenient.  Also, going this route I'm given things I never normally would have chosen.  Up until last week I had NEVER tasted a fresh fig. Imagine that!

Now, what the heck do I do with an eggplant?

I've heard of this and plan on doing it. I'm having a hard time finding the place closest to me.

yeah.. i wouldn't know what to do with half of that stuff. Pathetic huh? :) I thought fig's tasted like dirt too. I just barely tried one two weeks ago.

That's awesome that you can do this. I've wanted to go to the Farmer's market here for months but every week I either forget about it or its just too hot to walk around. I'll have to meet you there one of these days!
