Gone Organic....I think

About a month ago I was reading a friend's blog and she was talking about organic produce. She joined a buying club (Annie's Organic) and distributes discounted organic produce locally! It sounded good - no sign up fees & no commitment. The pics looked good. So, the TLH Huffs are giving it a shot. Leonard & I are always talking about eating healthier and we do keep fresh fruits and veggies around for the girls.

Today we picked up our first half share of organic produce. It included strawberries, bananas, red seedless grapes, oranges, flavor granade pluots (plum & apricot mixed), jumbo yellow onions, zucchini, tomatoes, baby spinach, broccoli, curly kale, & hass avocados. We're starting off with the half share bi-weekly for now. But the girls have already devoured a good portion of the fruit and Leonard is cooking up most of the veggies tonight in a quiche. So, we will probably be ordering another half share for next week or upgrading to a full share.

We have even turned this into a homeschool assignment for Hannah. She asked why we were buying our food from somebody's house instead of the grocery store. I explained to her that these fruits & veggies were special because they are organic. "What does that mean?" So, Banana will be doing some research and writing an essay on what organic means and why it's beneficial for good health.

Do you buy organic produce? If so, where?
