Hi all.I just bought a giant box of bananas from Costco yesterday (only cost about $22). I definitely want to go all in with this HCRV lifestyle, but my family doesn't really understand what I'm…Continue

Anyone up for a bike around BWI in MD one Saturday? If you haven't ridden there yet, they have excellent trails. It's just under 11 miles for the loop, has a few hills, and passes by some horse…Continue

Hey guys! Wanted to let you know Lotte Assi Plasa just opened and the fruit at Lotte Assi Plasa is AMAZING! They have breadfruit, canistel, rambutan, 5 kinds of bananas, 2 kinds of persimmons, and MUCH more I didn't even get to see! And the prices are amazing!!! My entire day of food only cost $7 and I eat A LOT, it was awesome! The bananas are only 39 cents a pound. They just opened on 12/14/12. So excited!

Thanks Tara and Casey! 

Tara, I'm not sure I'm ready for that yet but wow, it's such a cool idea! 

Casey, thanks for the info.  I'm completely new to this.  Only started thinking about it 3 weeks ago, one of those weeks I was on vacation and the others, I have scoured the internet for information.  I just go my 80/10/10 book the other day!  I'm totally interested in splitting cases.  Can you give me an idea of how much fruit and greens you eat in one week?  I want to make sure I get enough so I can stick to it but not so much that it goes bad.  Not to mention, I dont want to waste money as I'm afraid my grocery bill will be more than I'm use to but I feel it is worth it!  I've been sick with chronic lyme and bartonella for nearly 4 years.  I've tried everything and after much research believe this could be the answer I am looking for.

I've heard of the place in Jessup.  I'm in Hagerstown, but I think I'll try it sometime.  For the past few years, I've been running my own produce co-op/buying club out of my garage.  I get wholesale produce from Tuscarora Organic Growers in PA (local stuff) and from Four Seasons Produce (supplies grocery chains).  It's been great, but my organizational energy is running low, so I'm starting to look for other options to keep my family in good produce!  But, starting your own buying club is always an option, too, if you have time to organize it.  If you're interested in getting started with something like that, message me... I'll share my experiences.  :-)

Hi all,  I'm very new to the whole LCRV lifestyle.  Still transitioning but feel deep down this is the right choice for me.  I've skimmed through all the posts but was hoping you guys that are more seasoned might be able to help me.  I live in the Ellicott City/Columbia MD area and was wondering where a person might purchase bulk fruits and veggies for cheaper than the grocery store.  I would love any tips, advice and/or to be included in any bulk order groups you guys have going.  Thanks!

Hi Noel! I'm in Arlington, so still pretty far away. Haven't heard of anyone out your way yet, but hopefully someone will surface.

Comment by Freshenista on July 19, 2012 at 9:43am

I've got commitments the next 4 weekends, and possibly beyond, so probably won't make it. But I'll keep an eye on the plans just in case. Thanks to Erin and Casey for getting the ball rolling!

I can't get to Woodstock either.  Depending on where your land is, we might be able to go.  Either way, would love to see all of you.

Hey everyone! We should have our own mini- woodstock fruit festival in July or August for a day or two, camp out and have everyone bring lots of fruit and meet new people. If anyone is interested in a meet up like this, let me know - we'll make a plan!

Comment by James Testerman on June 22, 2012 at 7:23am

@anabea- i'll have to check it out. I can get jack fruit and durians at an asian market in ellicott city, md. Lotte i believe it is. ill keep you updated if i find anything else. 

Comment by anabea on June 20, 2012 at 9:28pm

@james - haven't found anything.  I have found a "russian" market that sells fruit cheap.  It isn't organic though.  I have been buying cases of golden mangoes at whole foods that isn't too expensive and they have been glorious after a couple of weeks of ripening.  Also, Trader Joes has some organic fruit and greens and that hasn't been very expensive.  They sell by the case, but I found out that there isn't a price break for them.  If you find something, will you let me know?
