I-Picked: Berry Fantastico
This cache was $17.02. 14 pounds of perfect fruit, each berry hand-selected by husband, son, and I, for $17 and 2 cents. I do not know why I ever step foot in grocery stores, especially here where there are farms aplenty in just a short drive away from town (read, 20 minutes).
Produce was the only thing I had been going to the grocery store for now anyhow (what with Azure Standard covering the pantry so well), and now...well, I have no excuse (except banana's, potatoes, onions, carrots, and celery out of season...these are staples I cannot, thus far, live without...perhaps someday I will be able to grown them myself for myself, but until then, we will enjoy our WholeFoods treks in the stroller).
ps - We're doing more picking tomorrow! No more store bought frozen berries either...I can do that myself too!
