It’s time for another organics delivery box haul! Back in January I blogged our first Organics To You box (see post here) of the year so I thought I might follow up with how things are going. First off Organics To You is a local Portland area organic produce subscription box that is delivered straight to your front door. They have a variety of different boxes based on your needs as well as additional produce and (limited) grocery items.
If you remember we started off with the small bin and baby add-on. Since then we have gone with the large bin but due to too much fruit (one can only eat so many pears, apples & kiwi) we skipped last week and this week went with the all veggie box and the baby add-on. We also sometimes add grocery items to our order such as Papa G’s tofu or a bar of chocolate or loaf of bread; this week we went with blue corn tortillas and pinto beans.
This week we received in all veggie box ($36):
- 1# Tomatoes: Mex.
- 4-5oz. Bulk Spinach: Local, farm direct
- 2# Potatoes: Local, farm direct
- 1 Bunch Spring Green Onions: Local, farm direct
- 6oz. Shitaki Mushrooms: Local, farm direct
- 1 Bunch Broccoli: Cali’
- 1 Bunch Celery: Cali’
- 1 Bunch Lacinato Kale: Cali’
- 2 Yellow Onions: Local
- 1 Garlic: Cali’
8oz. Brussels Sprouts: Mex.Missing from our box and no substitute (contacted them)
- 1# Beets: Local
- 1# Rutabaga: Local
In our Baby Add-On ($15):
- 1 Mango
- 2 Pink Lady Apples
- 2 Fuji Apples (both were super bruised – disappointed)
- 4 Pears
- 3 Kiwi
- 6 Bananas
- 2lbs Sweet Potatoes
Grocery Add-On’s ($9.50):
- Blue Corn Tortillas
- Pinto Beans
Overall I am mostly happy with your box this week with exception of brussels and apples. Hoping that maybe they will send replacements next week.
Goal: Share recipes next week after I cook up these veggies!
Have you ever tried a produce delivery service?
I have tried Organics To You for a few months. Gave it up because I wasn’t happy with the day of the week they delivered and, like you, had some disappointing produce a few times. But I used to get a CSA subscription and LOVED it. The only problem was getting to the farmer’s market each week to pick it up.
