I just had a group of friends sign up for a farmers co-op type thing - where you pay a fixed amount per week and farmers deliver a full share or part share of their produce with you (you sort of take a chance - sometimes mother nature steps in and wrecks havoc on crops and you won't get anything) - anyway, she was boasting she paid $60 for this: Picture1.jpg
Which more or less (in quantity) is delivered every week at the (what I think is high priced) price of $240 a month...
So I told her that she and some of the other ladies (who also balked at the price) should come put in a half day with me in my garden every spring pulling weeds/transplanting/maintaining and I'd let them take home that much and fresh eggs once a week. LOL!
I would LOVE to have an extra pair or two of hands in the spring. Then I can go BIGGER! They (whoever 'they' is - maybe the garden gods? LOL) say that if the grass out grows your garden and you can't keep it pulled, then your garden is too big for you. I don't care - I still have so much fun planting and growing -- the veggies grow JUST FINE in the grass - you just have to search harder for them when you want something to eat. Haha!
