My Own Market | Family Economics
I’ve been limited to time and space, in using all the veggies from our garden this year.
I’m still roasting and freezing my tomatoes, and I came up with a new idea for using our plentiful crop of tomatoes, because I just can’t let anything go to waste!
So last month I started doing this: instead of letting any of these beauties go to waste, I decided to put them out on my front porch, fill the basket daily, put a bucket of plastic sacks out too – and tell my friends and neighbors to help themselves!
It’s what my Grandma used to do on her farm, except on a much smaller scale.
I guess you could say it’s my own little grower’s market, right outside my front door!
Do you buy summer produce from a grower’s market or the grocery store? Do you grow them yourself, or do your friends share them with you?
