Yeah fresh food is expensive. I joined a oh what do you call it. It's not a co-op, but basically what I did was by a share of a local farm. What happens is that I pay for a season of food up front and then have a weekly pick up. Since there is only 2 of us I bought a half share which is basically $25 a week. I pay it in the beginning (becomes this organic farmers "seed" literally "seed" money) I was nervous when I started this last year. Because there is a risk, if there is crop failures well, they suck. Last year there was, but to be honest it didn't matter. I was still sharing food with my neighbors and my parents because we couldn't eat it fast enough. The variety of things we got was tremendous and I'm in the Midwest so I didn't expect it. We received, black berries, strawberries, blueberries, cabbage, spinach, watermelon, cantaloupe, honeydew, all the colored peppers, hot peppers, green beans, snow peas, tomatoes, zucchini, eggplant, onion, potatoes. black beans, broccoli, cauliflower, several different kinds of cucumbers, corn and a ton of stuff I don't remember. It was nuts. Season goes from the end of April-2nd week in November.
Saves us a ton of money and this way we only eat stuff in season.
