My Organics have arrived!

I am so excited. I am trying a new thing for my family. I ordered all our fruits and veggie through an organic farm and they delivered them to my door! I have occasionally bought different organic fruits and veggies at the store when I go shopping but never all of them. When I was unloading all the goods I couldn't believe the quantity and variety. I'm amazed and so happy I did this. We got in our box, a pineapple, 8 pears, 13 plums, 2 bunches of bananas with 5 in each, cucumber, 2 tomatoes, 3 potatoes, 4 bunches of greens (lettuce), bag of carrots, bunch of celery, squash, and a head of cauliflower. My fridge is FULL! We get a box every other week. I might change it to every 3 weeks...we'll see! Right now I'm just so excited about the healthy food and can't wait to start using it.

On a totally different topic, I've been reading this book called Aaron's Way it's about the journey of a strong-willed child written by his mom and him. As I'm reading I think that I might have at least one strong-willed child if not two...haven't finished the book yet. But I think I might have been one. It says that these children see the world as black and white/right and wrong. They don't like it when people change the rules or are unfair. I have a hard time if people change something on me without warning or reason. Then on the other hand when Aaron explains the reason he did things as a child I don't get it which probably means I wasn't a strong-willed child. I'll have to ask my parents what they think I was as a child...or maybe not! Anyway, it is a really good book written by Kendra Smiley and her son Aaron who is now an adult.

That is so nice that you have an organic farm that will deliver your produce! I love organic produce! It tastes so much better and stays fresher longer!

Where is it that you get the food?? Is it just delivered to your area? I want to look into that!

Wow that is so cool! I have seriously thought about doing a farm-share here many times, but haven't really found a good one yet. Enjoy all the fruit and veggie goodness!
