Organic Fruit Share

Yay! Today I picked up our family's first organic fruit share (cost is $15) from the Homegrown Organics group. There are several pick-ups in Gainesville, so it is convenient for most people, if you are interested. I posted a photo of what our $15 bought. Before you cry out that you can get it cheaper (and I KNOW some of you can get it cheaper!), please remember, this IS organic, and it helps support our local farmers and growers too! A win-win!
 Doesn't that look great? Yep!

And just for a quick comparison, I priced the same (or similar if not avail.) items at Publix today and the cost was around $21. A savings of $6! The pick-up is super convenient, and the time is also. A great deal. I'll price a couple of more times just for reference in the future.

We will be receiving our CSA farm share of veggies/fruits starting late Oct. from the Family Garden, and this fruit only share will be a supplemental addition to that. At only $550 for the season (until June!), this adds up to less than $20 a week for our organic fruits and veggies from the farm share, a really great deal! Plus, I don't have to shop 3 or 4 different stores just for the organics sales and selections. Also, this helps us to eat more seasonally, which is a great thing as well. Because the farm share amount is due in full at the beginning of the season, you may need to save up, but I think the payoff is worth it. I'll take photos and let you all know as we get our farm shares what we got that week. The link to the Homegrown Organics group is HERE. A FULL box of fruit and veggies is $40 a week. HOWEVER, you do not need to commit to every week! You can get one every other week. You can also get a 1/2 share for $25, a fruit only share for $15, or even a low glycemic box for $25! They also have organic beef, eggs and such available. Check the website for details!  

As for our farm share, this comes from the Family Garden farm that is local to our area, located in Bell, FL. Organic fruit and veggies are sold weekly at the downtown farmers market if you want to buy a few things here or there, or make up your own box. You can visit their website to learn more about the farm, or the CSA program HERE.

Outlive Your Life by Max Lucado

As a book reviewer for Booksneeze, I am happy to offer my review of one of the newest books by author Max Lucado titled:
Outlive Your Life
You Were Made to Make a Difference
by Max Lucado

Max Lucado's newest book, Outlive Your Life is a call to arms. Loving arms. Giving arms. Max uses his particular style of Bible based examples to take the reader into the lives of the men and women who served following Christ, and how their loving service to God brought down cultural walls, emotional walls and brought the multitudes to salvation through Christ. He brings us to today and shows us, with his easy to hear message, how we can dare to do the same today! 
This book is absolutely spectacular! Of all of the books of his that I have read, this book touched me more than any other. The heart of this book is to get each and every person to stand up, take notice and make a move (even a tiny one) to make a difference in this life. YOUR Life. Because what you do CAN make a difference. I know it sounds a bit trite, but I assure you that you will be moved by this call. Perhaps the most affecting plea to me was that I certainly can make a difference, and I don't have to wait until I have more money, a cleaner house, a better position..a more anything before I can alter the life of someone. Maybe several someones. Maybe hundreds, even. Why stop there? Listen, if you have a heart for the poor, the hungry, the broken hearted, the elderly, the enslaved, the lonely, the unsaved, the lost and MUST read this amazing book! You will feel empowered, you will feel motivated, you will get on your knees in prayer and thank God that you have the ability to make a difference and the will to do so. Then you will possibly ask, "What do you want me to do today, Lord?" Do not hesitate to get this book and read it. Then share it with a friend. Together we can really change lives, and we can do it starting right now. Brothers and Sisters, we are of one like mind, one family and one very loving, forgiving and merciful God. Let's share that gift with others as soon as we can!
