Bountiful Basket #1

Today was my first Bountiful Basket pick up… and I am pretty impressed!  You can go to for more info & to sign up if you want… basically, it’s a volunteer organization that provides fruits & vegetables for a very reasonable price.  You sign up on Monday & Tuesday, pay $15 by credit card, then go pick up the bounty on Saturday.  There are actually quite a few locations in Montana too.

here’s the haul…

We got:

  • 2 heads of lettuce (with the roots still attached… so it should last longer cuz it’s alive)
  • a pineapple
  • 5 bell peppers
  • 2 bunches of radishes
  • 2 cucumbers
  • 4 bunches of broccoli
  • 5 tomatoes
  • 2 onions
  • 6 oz of blackberries
  • 5 apples
  • 5 oranges
  • 6 pears
  • 6 persimmons (a fruit apparently… going to take some research)

Cody was pretty impressed… all that for $15 πŸ™‚ He even woke up early with me so we could go pick it up at 7:15.  I bought him a latte & a doughnut as compensation πŸ˜‰
