Grateful for the Co-op

This is just a smidgen of some of the beautiful organic produce we got from our first order with the newly-formed produce cooperative. The potatoes look amazing, the nectarines smell sweet and the apples are crisp and oh-so-juicy. I had already made quick work of sauteeing the plump button mushrooms. They will be ready for our supper of linguini tomorrow. The cantaloupe should be ready for devouring tomorrow. It was about 2/3 the size of the one I had purchased at the store last weekend. The prices are so reasonable too. For the same price or just a few pennies more as conventionally-grown produce, we get luscious, pesticide-free yummies for our tummies.

We had already been active in the co-op that serves our need for cleaning products, toiletries, household items, and even clothing. I'm grateful that we have this opportunity to support companies that provide clean, organic and responsibly manufactured products.
Any chance to give back to the planet is the least I can do. Gotta take care of Mother Earth!
