  • So worth it!! I am so happy we have this in our community.

    • $150 is a lot for vegetables unless it’s for a number of people. How do the sellers regulate how much is taken? Or the consumer assured getting what they want? Are things on offer that makes it worth not growing your own in containers or community gardens instead? Especially in the winter.

      I truly have wondered about this.

      • Four months is $37.50 a month. Thats not too bad. Food is expensive. I would guess the “taking” is self regulated. Who needs more Chard then they can eat? You can’t freeze or can it. I would like to know how much of what is planted. It would suck to pay $150 and only get Chard and Kale
