Produce Visit

As many of you have read in past posts, the garden thing just isn't working out - not enough sun. Hence no produce. And the squirrels keep demolishing the strawberries. We live in a small town - no farmer's markets. Only one big fruit stand and they ship stuff in it is not grown on their property except the corn. What to do? Well, there is a small produce store in our town and some of the items are home grown and some are shipped in. Today me and Grace took a visit and bought these items:
Strawberries - 1 pack
Blueberries - 1 pack, going to make home made muffins tomorrow
Bananas - 1 bunch
Head of lettuce
Apples - 5 large golden delicious
Free Range Eggs - Can't remember if 18 or 24
Huge Dill Pickled for Grace's snack this afternoon.
Red Seedless Grapes

Grand Total 18.00
I thought that was pretty good. Should last us most of the week.

too bad your garden didn't work out..I love having our little vegetable patch in our backyard. We don't have much shade and hardly any trees around here, so no squirrels..just a few rabbits!

I'm glad you have a place to get good produce.

So sad your garden didn't turn out. Looking at the photo of your house though it is very evident that there may be a sunlight problem. I imagine that you would have to do some fancy fencing too for the squirrels (the same as others do here for the possums and wallabies)
