Hello all! Amos and I have started to document all our spending in MiniMoney to see exactly how much we spend per month... and we spent a whopping $511.69 on groceries last month. And that doesn't even include eating out. (That would be another $201.80.) Is this normal? It seems awfully high to me.
So lets catch up on the CSA box:
CSA Box for March 26th:
Russet Potatoes WI
Suntan Peppers FL
Micro Greens IL
Yellow Onions CA
So under half of the produce we received this week is local. But what can you do? It is just the beginning of spring here. I am thinking about planting some spinach and greens in containers on my back porch. We started receiving the box for convenience but what could be more convenient than just stepping out on the back porch and grabbing a bunch of spinach we grew ourselves?
Anyone want to offer up a rooftop spot in their building for us to start a container garden?
A non-food related item (or maybe it is food related?): Amos and I went for the first time on Sunday to play bike polo! It was really interesting as I have never actually ridden a bike into a chain link fence before... good times. The website shows it being played on grass but we were playing on a tennis court in Humbolt Park. Oh what Sunday fun there is to be had.
