Trading Away Excess Garden Goodies

July 13th, 2014 by

I was having an interesting conversation today of a person who grows a lot of fruits and vegetables in his backyard where for some items they simply grow too fast and his family can’t consume everything. I was curious if he ever traded them with other people for different goods and he mentioned that he didn’t as in his mind most people wouldn’t be supportive for the idea.

This made me curious if it was simply a cultural thing in some places as I know here a lot of people would be open to the idea. Generally speaking, it costs us money to buy this stuff from the grocery store and as long as the other person has a need for the item it is almost like another form of cash. Funny enough, I even remember a person in my old neighborhood was simply selling groceries that he grew for the heck of it as he was bored of simply being in retirement a mode. As well, he would buy the items from other gardeners as well to then resell it.

Money doesn’t always have to be in the form of cash or credit I guess you can say in terms of having some kind of currency to buy items.
