Me: Maybe we should do a CSA share this year. [Where you pay money up front to have produce once a week from a local farm.]
Me: Wait. Wow. That's expensive. It's $420 for a half share.
SH: What's that?
Me: Thirteen boxes, one every other week for the season.
SH: We could feel superior.
Me: Yes, but I am looking at a sample box. Last summer, in one box, they had
- 1 lb. asparagus
- 1.5 lb. rhubarb
- 1.25 lb. spinach
- red leaf lettuce
- button mushrooms
- green garlic
SH: This doesn't sound like the sort of decision you make using objective decision criteria.
Me: What? I always use objective decision criteria!
SH: That's what I mean. It doesn't make financial sense to do this. So the reason to do it is to feel good about ourselves.
