And also because bringing in strawberries from 3,000 miles has quite the impact on the environment and leaves many mysteries about pesticides and fertilizers used on fruit and veggies...
And because I'm a control freak...
And because Adam has such fond memories of his parent's vegetable garden as a child...
We're just going to do it ourselves. A vegetable garden is in our future. Is it really time to start seeds already? We have NO IDEA what we're doing. I don't have the slightest clue how to grow anything edible and could use a hint or two about vegetable gardening in the suburbs. I'm guessing we will create a 15'x20' space for the garden. Any clues would be very appreciated!
Also, I'm looking for a local farm to buy chicken, pork and beef from. Suggestions?
In the meantime, we've decided to use Green Bean Delivery for most of our fruit and produce. We ordered our first box last week and it arrived today. Yum!
