Best Bang for the Buck
By: tlb (Jan 27, 2009)
I live in West Des Moines and on occasion get to Keosauqua and have picked up boxes from Bloom and Bark. It is by far the biggest and best box I've ever had opportunity to receive. The box is loaded with fresh, chem-free veggies and herbs. My husband and I can dine on this one box for the week (and then some!) and never have to make a run to the grocer. No other CSA in the Des Moines metro compares to this for volume, value, and price.
My only complaint is I don't live close enough to actually buy a share and get a box every week! With a few bags of rice/beans/lentils, one share would carry our entire grocery bill for the summer! A ridiculously AWESOME BARGAIN for my very skinny wallet!
