Local, Organic Fruits “To You”

Excited! Just received the first shipment from Farm Fresh To You, a service that delivers different packages of produce (just fruit, just vegetables, mostly fruit, mostly vegetables, etc.).  Everything local & sustainable + everything organic + fair prices = sweet deal 🙂 Plans are flexible and there are no contracts; you choose the frequency of your deliveries (weekly, biweekly, and so on). Here’s what was delivered for this week’s “Mostly Fruit” package:

Farm Fresh To You - Mostly Fruitpink lady apples

braeburn apples

blood oranges

tangelos

kiwis

avocados

carrots

red d’anjou pears

bosc pears

The minute I opened it, I ate a pinky lady – crispy and delicious! Some apples had some bruises on them, but it doesn’t make much of a difference in terms of taste and quality. The box will probably last a good 1.5 weeks for an average family of 4 (refrigeration recommended for some fruits). Should you decide to sign up for the service, please let them know I referred you by giving them my customer ID #70799 😉 You won’t regret it!
