How much does it cost your way? I would think that they're fairly inexpensive.
Uhm, yeah, we grow our own. But I think they're about 60 cents a pound at the store, less at the farmer's market.

Guess I'd better look into a fruit-shipping license!

Yup.* And far, far off on the horizon is Pearl Harbor's channel, where I can wave bye-bye to departing submarines.*

Depending on your climate (or your tolerance for indoor heat & light) you might be able to grow your own.

Life is good.

Re: Breaking the Thrift Habit??

No thanks. I'm not growing anything but crabgrass and plastic yews. A neighbor recently sold his very successful fake christmas tree business and part of the deal was a no-compete clause. So now he's making fake outdoor shrubs ranging from ground cover to 3-4' trees. They look fine and UV from the sun has little effect. Even the birds can't tell the difference.

Now this could be a good idea for the ER traveller who may be away for months at a time...another market?

Bonsai!

love the pic nords
