produce co-op

(Sorry about the bad picture. I took it with my phone since I still don't have my camera!)
Some girls in my ward have this produce co-op that they have been doing for a while. Thy had an opening and they invited me to join :) This is my first time,but so far it's pretty cool. I'll try and explain it a little bit. OK, there are 12 mom's in the group. Twice a month you pay $20.00 and 2 of the mom's go down to the Dallas Farmers Market and pick up a ton of fruits and veggies. Then they go home, divide it all up, and you go to their house and pick it up. We are on a rotating schedule, so every 3 months me and my partner will have to take a turn going to the market. Look how much fresh food I got for $20.00!!! Lettuce, tomatoes, onions, zucchini, corn, oranges, apples, bananas, grapefruit, kiwi, cantaloupe, bell peppers, peaches, carrots. Each time you get different stuff, depending on what's there and what's fresh. Pretty cool, huh?!

But is it organic? totally kidding. It sounds rad. I really miss all the local farms and fresh veggies and fruits that were so nearby in wyoming this summer
