Produce Prices

Like gas prices, prices in the grocery store are going up. I spent $100 on produce today. A hundred dollars! And I didn't need a cart to get my bags out of the store.

There were several things I didn't buy because of the price. One single head of organic cauliflower was $5. I'm still flabbergasted.

This is why it's exciting that summer C.S.A. seasons are starting soon. At my farm, the weekly take is more than I carry, and I've only spent about $20 per week.

I can't wait to be eating only what's in season, and not worrying so much over my wallet while I'm doing it. Thank the lucky stars for C.S.A.s! (Better yet, join one to be sure small farms survive.)
