    I remember at least 12 years ago, my dad would buy bulk sweets from the grocery store and one time we went to buy chocolate covered peanuts. He used the scoop to dig down a ways and out popped quite a few flies. I think that experience influenced my shopping ways but now I use Sprouts bulk sections and the quality is the same as buying...

    I do not have a green thumb. The lettuce I planted at the beginning of the challenge has sprouted, but does not seem to be getting any larger. I am supposed to be able to eat my lettuce after 42 days. I don't think that will be happening. This is why I have a hard time growing my own food. I cannot seem to get it to mature.
