Abundant Harvest Organics - Fruits and Vegetables


I am fortunate to live in an area where there are plenty of fruits and vegetables. The Central Valley of California has an abundance of orchards, farms and vineyards all yielding wonderful food and wine. The Valley actually produces many of the fruits and vegetables consumed in America!

A friend told me about Abundant Harvest Organics. She raved about the fact that she got fresh organic fruits and vegetables each week. She talked about getting vegetables that she had never seen or tried in the past. I was intrigued and decided that I would try it out.


It is now a year later and we still get up early every Saturday morning to go to the designated pick-up spot for our "box"! We have never regretted the decision to participate. I too, have had to learn to prepare vegetables that I had never before eaten! It has been our Saturday adventure. Weekly menus are planned around "what's in the box!"

Take a look at some of what is inside....

Can you believe the variety?

On another week, fresh basil!

A platter of fresh vegetables!

We are very fortunate to always have fresh fruit and vegetables! As the seasons change, the variety of fruits and vegetables changes. It is always exciting to see just what is hidden inside each week! Some things are familiar and others not! If you have a chard or kale recipe that you would like to share, I am looking for some and eager to try them!

  4. I'm jealous too. We don't have that tradition here, and I wish we did. But we DO have open-air markets with lots of good local produce. I'm also jealous of the corn--here, they only grow field corn. Sometimes I can find corn in the markets, but it usually comes from too far away.

    I love trying new veggies! Yours look mouth-watering.
