I am now on Day 8 of my Three Month Challenge to not go shopping. It is going well. I think I stocked up well, and I love it that I am just going to rely on seasonal and local fruits and veggies. I am still buying milk and buttermilk at Lassens and then fruits and veggies at Farmer’s Market. Yesterday, we had the opportunity to go walnut picking (really picking up off the ground). We picked up 18 lbs of organic walnuts for $9 from a sweet little ranch in Upper Ojai. Now, we have the wonderful task of shelling them, eating, freezing. But, what a great thing to get at such a great price. Dave also went hunting this past week and got 5 quail- local, organic, and very low cost. More updates to come…
