Abundant Harvest Box

I decided to add a new feature to the blog! I want to show you guys what yummy veggies and fruits I get in my box. I really think its a great deal. I switched my subscription from a small box to a large box. The plan was to take everything out and take a picture. I got so excited about how much good stuff was in it that I forgot to take the picture! So here is a list:
25-30 october sun plums(I didn't count but it was alot)
4 pomegranates, 1 bag dark grapes
4 zucchini, 3 lg tomatoes, a container of cherry tomatoes
1 lg head cauliflower, 1 eggplant, 6 carrots
12-14 sml potatoes, 1 head of romaine, 1 head of green leaf, sage
1 cantaloupe, 6 sml bell peppers, 1 basket green figs
All organic! When you make the decision to eat seasonal, local and mostly organic you have to think ahead! I used the tomatoes, 2 carrots, and 1 zucchini to make a pasta sauce that I froze. I also shredded 2 of the zucchini and froze them to use in cakes, breads, and other stuff in the winter. I will be freezing some bell peppers and onions the next time I get them. At some point I will have to learn to can things but i'm not quite there yet.


  1. I found an amazing tip it seems. Haven't tried it myself. Grill whole tomatoes until they are slightly charred & mushy, then skin or not and blend. Freeze. Good for a few months when you can't get fresh.B-)Love, Mom

  2. I can now say that it works great! Grilling tomatoes makes them taste great. I used the sauce for spanish rice & it was really good. Wish I knew about this when I had a million tomatoes!
