Re: Bartering

Thanks for all the thoughts. We ended up giving him a baker's dozen bulbs of garlic, some of which he is going to plant and some he will eat. In return he gave us about 20 butternut squash and a big bag of random decorative gourds. I kind of like the easy "meh... looks like about this much..." approach my DH has with his friends.

That said we did also barter a saw and a toolbox from our neighbours for eggs over the last year. I forgot about them when I was starting this thread. I like that, too. I love it when money doesn't have to change hands.
