Fresh Fruit and vegetable, reasonable cost, at local garden!

MIMOSA PLACE Garden Spot in Lafayette, LA.

Who knew!  One person can really make a difference. You can pick your own berries (a 1 gallon bucket) for a small donation.  You can purchase vegetable plants, some for as little as a $1.00 and you can purchase excess for pennies on the dollar.  This little spot is one of  Lafayette's best kept secret...maybe not any more.
The owner, so I was told is a retired ULL professor (agriculture science related) and does this as a hobby.  What a hobby.  Anyway, I love it. And once you visit, you will too!
