I will be meeting up with another cow share owner one night this week... probably on Wednesday. We live about 2.5 miles apart and are going to start sharing the responsibilities of picking up our milk... so I'll only have to go every other week from now on. This will be great, especially with the price of gas going up. We'll figure out schedule and whatnot when we meet up this week, but I'm really hoping I can start this week... picking up the milk on the weeks I work Fridays. Especially right now when CSA Farmer's Market is only on every-other-week pickups and they fall on my work Fridays. I have to be out in Argentine, anyway. Plus, its easier for me to swing out that way to get the milk and CSA on my way home from work than it is to make a special trip out there on my flex Fridays. So hopefully that works out. I'm looking forward to getting to know this couple. Diane and I spent about an hour and a half on the phone chatting last night. Sounds like we have a lot we can both learn from one another.
