Boycott the bruised, store-bought peaches that keep trying to poison you with their pesticides and cynical outlook on life. Today’s deal fills up the larder with fresh fruits and veggies from Nature's Garden Delivered. For $15, you get a box of local produce delivered to your doorstep (a $32 value). This price includes delivery, and there is no sales tax, but you must be within the radius of Nature’s Garden’s Cincinnati delivery area. You'll also get 15% off on your second order. Produce boxes are delivered between 1 a.m. and 7 a.m. on your selected delivery day, ensuring that the order arrives fresh. Check out the Nature’s Garden site for additional info on how the service works.
Start by choosing a small fruit box, veggie box, or mixed box of both. Each box includes a palate-pleasing assortment of edibles. The contents change each week, depending on what’s in season and how many are pilfered in transit by a hungry moose and a deserving porcupine. The fruit box has items such as Braeburn apples, kiwi, bananas, mangos, navel oranges, pears, and plums, while the veggie box has seasonal greens including kale, onions, avocados, and squash. Shoppers have the option to substitute or add items to their orders, just like at less-healthy deep-fried sundae buffets, but without the guilt or stomach explosions. Almost all Nature’s Garden produce is organic, and most is locally grown. Owners Isaac Foust and Annalise Appel run a carbon-neutral facility that recycles or composts all of its waste.
A box of fruit, vegetables, or both allows you to escape a preservative- and pesticide-filled life without leaving home or building a protective toffee bodysuit. Your surprise farm-bounty packages will also encourage you to get creative in the kitchen, instead of falling back on your go-to meal of “Hot Pockets dipped in whatever condiments the Chinese place threw in the bag.”
