The other day one of my friends was mentioning that she bought organic strawberries from one of our local stores here in Edmonton, and they were moldy the very next day. I’ve had similar experiences with organic lettuce or other produce when I buy them from a big box store.
On May 17 I received a delivery from the Organic Box… it had strawberries in it. That weekend was busy with some parties and activities at church. On Monday when I finally pulled out those strawberries to wash and serve them to my kids, they looked like this.
These had been in my fridge for a five days and I didn’t have to throw any out or cut off any blemishes. They were very sweet and delicious, too! I think besides the Organic Box, the freshest place to get strawberries in Edmonton is from a farm later in the season!
