The Produce Box

As I have confessed in the past, a green thumb I do not have. Or as Yoda might say, "A green thumb have I not." Actually his thumbs probably are green. Anywho...the point is I can't grow stuff. Except herbs. Which are green. Darn it, I'm getting off track. This year, instead of deluding myself into believing that any of the vegetables I grow will produce edible fruit I joined something called The Produce Box. Some friends in my MOPS group work for this company and got me interested.

Basically, for a set fee, they deliver to your door a box of locally grown, fresh produce as often as up to once a week. I am very excited about this company. First of all, you know how much I love online shopping, and fresh produce delivered to your door? How cool is that? We also get to support a local family, since most of the deliverers are at-home parents looking to earn a little extra cash, and local small farms. And my family gets access to the freshest produce without me having to drive to the farmer's market each week...or try to grow it.

Our first box arrives the week of April 13th, and the owners have promised an assortment of fingerling potatoes, hot house tomatoes, swiss chard, strawberries, spinach, sweet potatoes and more this month. So stay tuned; I'll post pictures and recipes as the boxes arrive. Check out The Produce Box to see if they deliver to your neighborhood/town. If you're in Charlotte or Winston Salem areas check out The Farm Table.


  1. I would love to do this...I need to talk to Ashley or Jenna tomorrow!
