Back to the Barter System

I saw a brilliant post on today about a new website,, that allows home gardeners in your community to swap excess vegetables they might grow. Just punch in your zipcode and see what's available!

It's times like these that I wish I had a garden! I do remember my mother growing tomatoes and basil in our backyard growing up, and by midsummer, I wanted to crawl underneath the table when tomatoes were yet again served upon it... and for an Italian girl, that's an insane amount of tomatoes, and I sure wished there'd been a little more variety in our garden. (though now I miss those days of just walking into the backyard and picking what veggies I wanted for dinner!)For all the extra veggies that might sprout up in your home garden, this sounds like a great way to swap not only produce, but recipes as well!

I think this is a great idea. Wonder when it will take off in the UK?

PS Your welcome to my excess garden produce anyday, just a shame your on the other side of the world.
