Bountful Baskets Co-op (question and info for those that are interested)

fluffitude | Apr 16, 201109:17 AM     3

I just participated for the first time in our local Bountiful Baskets program. It's the only co-op I'm aware of that is still available to those in the Phoenix area. Anyway, if anyone else is using this service, can you please tell me what those small, green vegetables are that were in today's offering (4/16)? I'm not sure if they are really small zucchinis or gherkins or what they are. Can someone enlighten me?

Here's a link for those that don't know about B.B.: http://www.bountifulbaskets.org/ It's not the most comprehensive site, but you will figure it out :)

Every other week they offer organic fruits/veggies and weekly they have bread (whole grain) and other baked goods. they also offer a "special" seasonal type offering each week. this week it was a tropical box with mangoes, a pineapple, a coconut a couple vanilla beans and some citrus. There are many different pickup locations throughout the valley.

All and all it was an easy experience once I figured out their website. the only problem I had was one lady gave me crap about my service dog not being allowed into the pickup area. Not nice, lady...not legal, either.
