My brother's friend grows all her own vegetables and she has a few chickens as well. They only have to buy eggs if they are making lots of baked goods. Otherwise, all their egg needs are met and her husband eats a few eggs every morning.

They are in the outskirts of Nashville, but in a very residential neighborhood. And their back yard is very standard for the burbs.

I usually go every other week. I would plan my my menu in advance and for me that is 4-5 meals tops. I then proceed to the grocery store and get my items on my list. Now lately I have been going once a week so I have been planning 3 dishes per week. My snacks are usually the same hummus. I usually get apples because they have a loooooonnnnnggggg shelf life and I am on the tightest of tight budgets.

I go a couple of times a week. I eat fresh greens (spinach, kale, spring mix) regularly so they have to be replenished.

I just talked to my mom about strawberries (after she woke me up, and thank you for that). She picked some up which looked delicious, but all under the top layer were molded. This can't stand! I will riot!!

I look forward to my strawberries.

We sometimes call that an over populated back road here. Well, were my brother lives which is just outside of the closest "city". Area's that used to be tobacco (and other) farm land and just a few houses were developed after the government squashed the individual tobacco farmer, forcing them to sell their land. The land is still pretty good for growing so small backyard gardens are common. The last portion of clear land on my brothers road *his wife grew up there and several members of her family were farmers* was just developed and a large gated community went in.

I wish I had a good garden spot here. There is a nice flat place at the bottom of the mountain, that I could share with my Aunt, but I do not have time to help her maintain it.

i wish i could get chickens. But i just cant give up on eating chicken. I know some folks can take care of an animal then eat it, i just cant. I grow to love it, so can no longer eat it. I have taken care of goats, cows, pigs and i just cant look at them as food. If i got rid of chicken oh my!!! Duck is too expensive turkey is too dry for me, and gator is too far.

We're just raising the chickens for eggs, not to eat! But I realize not everyone lives in a place where they can keep hens, or wants to.

I find chicken meat to be gross and live chickens, too. JMO, tho lol

(But the right chicken parmigiana sandwich can temporarily suspend my repulsion.)

I usually go twice a week, once to Trader Joe's and once to the regular market. And in the summer and fall, every week or two I stop at the farm stand. We grow tomatoes, peppers and herbs in our garden. I would like to have chickens -- we have an acre, so I think our town allows it.

If you're interested in cutting down your trips to the store, try Debbie Meyer Green Bags, if you haven't already. I eat fresh greens (kale, spinach, lettuce) every single day, and I store them in green bags. The kale lasts for ~10 days; spinach lasts ~7 days, and spring mix will last ~7 days. I have been using green bags for years, and they've never let me down. I always have kale in the fridge and only buy it once a week. I still have some today that I bought 8 days ago, and it is as fresh today as it was when I first bought it. I prepare it by cutting it into bite-sized pieces, rinsing well and spinning in salad spinner, then spread out on paper towels on baking sheets until most of the surface water has evaporated, then place into the green bags and store in fridge. It's time consuming, but that's how it goes when eating whole foods.

I'm super finicky about the freshness of my food, so I wouldn't recommend green bags if they didn't work well. I hate slimy, wilted greens, and I won't eat them. We never throw out vegetables since we began storing them in green bags.

I hardly ever go. My husband on the other hand does at least a daily trip to Walmart. We have never bought groceries for a week or two at a time. Maybe I shouldn't say never. Seem to recall a couple times back in the 70's where we did; but if so, we haven't done that in 30 years. Of course, there has always been just the two of us. I'm sure if we had children we would have had to be more organized.

I like my veggies and fruit to be fresh so I tend to go just about every day or every other day depending on our meals.
