My Own Market | Family Economics

By Sandy

veggies from our garden

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.

my grower's market

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?
