Farm Fresh To You

Local veggies?
Local fruits?
Not from the Farmer's Market?
Where can you get these?

I get mine from Farm Fresh To You. You can get a variety of sizes with a variety of options. You can also choose how often you receive your box of goodies.  It's also the best way to get veggies you don't ordinarily purchase. I love that my family gets to try new veggies, veggies I wouldn't ordinarily purchase.

I get the mixed fruit and veggie box delivered every three weeks.  It is loaded with fresh, local, organic, and seasonal fruits and veggies. As soon as the boys see the box they dive right in and help them selves to the fresh fruits and veggies inside. It's refreshing to hear them say how good everything tastes, they especially love how fresh the carrots taste. They say they are better than store bought carrots. In my mind...that is win win.

Go check out Farm Fresh To You.
Let me know what you think.

Blackberry Jam and Trader Joe's

Okay, okay, okay, I am a slacker. I haven't been present in this forum for way too long. Now to get back into it. Even if it is ever so slowly.

How many of you enjoy the products at Trader Joe's? There are several items there I purchase for me and my family. One in particular is their Seedless Blackberry Jam.

We love i! It tastes very much like the blackberry jam my dad use to make. He would send me to all they alley's in my hometown to pick as many berries as possible. I would come home with purple hands and lips, stains on my clothes and scratches on my legs and arms. He taught me to make his jam and it was delicious. TJ's jam is as close to home as I can get and share with my family. However they have recently discontinued it. So unless they bring it back, by popular demand, I am on a hunt for new jam...or blackberry bushes to recreate my dad's jam.
