Brookfield Farm CSA

“How do you grow over 50 different crops for 500 shareholders who are coming to your farm to pick up 13lbs of vegetables for 24 weeks?

Sounds like a puzzle?

That’s the puzzle we were faced with when we started to manage our CSA and this is the answer we came up with….

Ergo Baby Carrier Review

If you’re a clued-in dad, you use the Ergo as much as your wife. It’s supposedly much better for the kiddos back vs Baby Bjorns.

I also hate with a passion the KELTY carriers circa 2006. The kid is WAY WAY WAY WAY too far from your back. Like a giant lever! If you want a frame, these are 2 good ones:

Another must have for little kids!  Absolutely worth almost any price really.  Hours of fun at the sink.  Priceless!

$5 cell phones

Why don’t more people use inexpensive pre-pay cell phone plans?  Like Virgin Mobile.  Look into it!  It’s great for occasional users.  And saves $30/month.

Bike roof racks

How many times must I learn that *roof* racks for bikes are flawed:

1) forget you have a “bike on the roof” when you open the garage door2

2) wind resistance of rack reduces MPG

IOW, get a rack that plugs into a hitch-mount.  DEFINITELY.  Worth it.

Scoot Bike

You have a three year old?  Buy one of these!  They will be riding a “normal” two-wheeler w/ pedals without training wheels by the time they are four!  Definitely get one with a hand brake if you can.
