Two steps forward, two steps back. Might as well just eat the steak from the two-headed calf at that point.
Enter the local Whole Life Buying Club.
For $50 every two weeks, our fearless leader (let's call her Jen) travels to the city and picks up our giant bags of organic produce from the local Urban Organics group. She brings the orders back to town and we converge on a central spot to retrieve our reusable grocery bags full of goodness. The list of available fruits and veggies changes with the season and you can, for an additional fee, add in an extra veggie or fruit "share".
This is my second pickup and I am once again extremely pleased with my haul.
|The odd plum-shaped fruits between the pears and the red onions are called pluots.|
And for some reason I got one beet. What does one do with a single beet??
I busted into the bread this morning. It was a little slice of honey whole-wheat heaven. I also ate my first organic pluot. Yeah, that was my question, too; What the hell's a pluot? Whatever it was, it was delicious.
