Block's

It’s not really a best kept secret because almost everyone knows about it, especially if you go in the summer or spring…

Block’s Greenhouse.

I love that place.

You can get great deals on flowers in the spring…

And in the summer you can get great deals on fruits and veggies.

They mostly sell whatever is in season so at corn time, there’s a lot of corn… at tomato time… lots of tomatoes… punkin time… you guessed it.

I need some zucchini for a new recipe I am going to be trying for our Secret Sisters Kick Off. Got the recipe from Eliz (remember, I told you about her on her b-day). I was just going to go to Krogers and get it, but it’s like $1.29/lb and that makes me mad because I know most people got more than they know what do with…

I called Kathy, she’s like my favorite cousin in the whole world. I could write a blog about her, and maybe I will someday… but anyway… Kathy has worked at Block’s for so long… it’s amazing. She was running down what they had and so I swung on by – it was WAY out of my way but I will drive anywhere for a good deal! Zucchini was $.89/lb (I bought 3.5 lbs – so that alone was worth it). They had apples – Some basket thing full for $2.50… grapes, cukes (I like the pickling kind – they have the best flavor), tomatoes, broccoli (2 heads for $1!! – Can I get a WOO HOO!?). I ended up with 2 of those big brown bags for $14.25.

And folks, if that is not all… they have punkins for $2.99/each. Buy 2 get 1 free! I didn’t get any though. I only had $17!
I don’t really recommend going there on the weekends, it’s crazy, but if you have time, stop there during the week, you won’t be sorry, and if it’s a Wednesday, ask for Kathy Klimaszewski, and tell her ‘Mugz says hi”.

Oh, and another thing… they only take cash. Don’t even THINK about writing a check!

Sorry, nothing to inspirational today... just a place to get a good deal.

I just confirmed, that rumor is not true...

Sara said...

it's not true! a nurse at work said that's what the cashier told her last week! hmmmm. i hope you're right! mac can cram 38 ears of corn into one bag!! of course, he also feels the need to actually climb into the wagon while i hold his ankles to find the best corns.
