What do you spend on fresh fruits and veggies a week
 
One thing my wife and I don't really budget is our groceries. We tend to shop a few times a week and buy only the next two or three meals at a time. So I don't have a good feel for this.

I'm trying to do the math on joining a local CSA. What would you say you spend a week on fresh fruits and veggies?

not much.
I'd probably say $10?
dpending on what we're having for dinners etc

Probably in the $50.00 to $75.00 range.

We probably spend about $25 on next week's garbage.

Don't care for fresh fruits and veggies or what?

My family eats a ton of fresh fruits and veggies. We do the CSA thing during the summer at the local farmers market. I have a fairly sizable garden as well, so I grow a lot of what I eat too.

Around $40 probably.

$25 - $40 every two weeks, do a lot more frozen veg (due to cost) than fresh. Most of our fresh veggies come out of the garden.

At the farmers market this morning I spent $11.50 on 3 bags of snap peas & 1 bunch of radishes

We do a lot of frozen veggies, too, as the "fresh" ones aren't too fresh anymore by the time they make it here. Fruit, potatoes and lettuce are the main produce items I buy, though I have no idea how much I'm currently spending.
