    : She might eat one or two but that's about it. The Costco sized bags have
    : something like 30 in there. She can't even eat one cucumber in the course
    : of the week. Exception being for the few days when she was making

    : course I bought a bag of frozen strawberries from Costco. Nobody will eat
    : those now.

    I buy th elittle cukes by the pound so I can buy just 2 or 3 adn they will
    last me a week. At Trader Joes, they sell them in packs of 5, which is
    not bad, but I do have to rmemember to eat them within a week. I would
    never consider buying 30 in a pack unless I was expecting tons of guests
    who loved cukes:-)

    No. He doesn't eat cucumbers and neither do I. Oh the strawberries! No.
    He won't eat them. I will only buy single serve ice cream with nuts in it.
    And only in small quantizes because we don't know when he is leaving. It's
    not his favorite. He prefers plain ice cream. Would never eat it with
    anything put on it. Nobody here eats custard either. Ice cream is
    something Angela will eat and she can't have it. So we will only buy the
    kind she can't have. She's not tempted by that. At least we have that big
    freezer. The berries will keep for awhile. She might get back into
    smoothies again one day.

    They are cheap. I have never seen them in any other store. Just the plain
    ones and the English.

    Of course, if you grow your own lettuce, then just a little vinegar,
    olive oil, black pepper, mustard, garlic, and herb du jour (I like
    oregano) is fine by itself. Garden lettuce at least has flavor. You
    could do it in a window box. Add a couple of 5 gal. pots, one for a
    Glacier tomato, and the other for a cucumber of choice (I like lemon),
    and a couple of times a week you will have a salad that is second to
    none.

    I like greens all of them mustard tunips collard greens and cabbage. I do eat salads from time to time but I must admit I do not know the difference between lettuce.

    Salads (lettuce) from the garden have flavor, and texture, and aren't

    No but as a person who has grown them in the pazt I do know that it is
    somewhat difficult to get the right amount of the greens. Not only do you
    tend to get too much at once but everybody you know with a garden will also
    get too many and try to give it to you! I have even tried the "cut and come
    again" type of mixes but they didn't work so well. I still got too much at
    once and then had to wait until it grew again so I could harvest it.
