I didn't plan on writing two blogs today but let's just throw caution to the wind and do it!

Today was grocery shopping day, we didn't need that much since I did a major shop after we got back from vacation and to be honest I still have quite a bit left so today was just a small fill in and fresh veggies.  It's warm here so for the first time ever I put the big cooler in the car with the ice packs and off I went.  First stop was Harris Teeter where list in hand (very very important) I picked up what we needed (sort of).  You know how hard it is to not buy a super bargain and I debated with myself before deciding to take advantage of the buy 2 get 3 free ice cream deal.  So now that the freezer is once again packed to absolute capacity with ice cream we just have to resist eating it all!

Stop two was my favoritist place The Vegetable Bin, they have in almost entirely local produce right now and there is a board listing what is from here!

Today's plethora of fresh fruit and veggies!

So for  27.66 we now have:
1.    2 ears of local white corn
2.    Scallions
3.    button mushrooms
4.    leeks
4.    white onions
5.    avocado
6.    3 1/2 lbs sweet potatoes
7.    2 jalapenos
8.    Bartlett pears
9.    eggplant
10.  red onion
11.  plums
12.  yellow squash
13.  red pepper
14. peaches
15. John's Island tomatoes
16. garlic
17. cilantro
18. pint of blueberries


  1. Wow, that's a good deal on the veggies and stuff. 'Specially the berries. Those things are expensive!

    1. Someone told me last night that I should go to Ambrose farms to pick blueberries! Not sure what I would do with all I picked since there is no room left in the freezer (due to the ice cream sale).

  2. I need a tomato sandwich, please?

    1. Omg, I had one for lunch on Friday. Lettuce, tomatoes, sliced onion (a new attempt that turned out wonderful), tons of mayo on some kind of really healthy bread. I was in heaven!

  3. these look beautiful.....
    I love to eat colorful foods...crunch....without once having a heartbeat....

    summer is such a great time for shopping

    1. I love that we eat so much lighter in the summer and these fruits and veggies are a big part of it!
