I found this site, http://www.farmandfieldtotable.org/ via a facebook post. I really like the idea. Basically if you grow food, you can post on here based on location and consumers can see what is available and purchase your produce/food. This seems like it would be very handy if you had a surplus of food you are trying to get rid of.
We are still getting our aquaponics system dialed, but we do have a small batch of lettuces and kales growing right now. Hopefully the lettuces will be ready in a couple weeks.
We will keep you up to date as the growing continues!
Thanks for all the support from all those who have already signed up, it really helps!
