1. Eat your vegetables
I talked to this really nice guy, Andrew Strickland, last week about his CSA (community supported agriculture) business. Andrew and Rob Glover (the farmer in this endeavor) are selling locally grown veggies on a weekly basis. You sign up NOW and these guys will grow and deliver fresh veggies and some fruits for 15 weeks starting next Tuesday, May 4. Cost is $275 for a small weekly box or $400 for a large box. If you go with the smaller box, that's less than $20 a week on fresh food and if you're not already spending at least $20 a week on that, well, you need to re-evaluate your diet. They meet you at a drop-off site once a week. Your box will come chock-full of things like strawberries, cabbage, peas, lettuce, onions, broccoli, string beans, new potatoes, corn, cukes, squash, butterbeans, bell peppers, watermelons and more. For more information or to sign up for a box, call Andrew at 230-0345 or Rob at 205-4054.
