My Edible Garden

I've been gardening for most of my life and have been a devoted fan of organic gardening the whole time. It just makes so much more sense to work in harmony with Mother Nature than to fight her. Besides which it is better for the planet and better for our bodies. Here you can see what I'm planting and harvesting, with gardening hints and resources thrown in for good measure.

On Saturday I participated in a new program starting up in my community called Bountiful Baskets. This is an all volunteer group that is bringing fresh, low cost produce to families. This co-op is all over the US so go check them out and see if there is one in your community and if not, volunteer to start one!

This is the best deal, this is a co-op, everyone pools their money and then volunteers buy and deliver the produce. A regular basket is $15 or you can get organic for $25. They also have additional products like rolls and breads that you can buy extra. The very first time you participate there is a one time fee of $3. This is so your volunteer can buy a laundry basket to sort your produce into. You take your own bags or boxes to take your produce home in.

This is what I got for my $15 this time, some red potatoes and two really huge onions, 2 pounds of carrots, 2 bunches of celery, 2 bunches of spinach a box of cherry tomatoes, a bunch of bananas, some pears, apples, tangerines and fresh pineapple, which I gave away because I can't eat them.

I'd like to encourage everyone to look into this program and join up, it's a great way to save money and eat better too!
