Sometimes we have plenty. Sometimes we have more than plenty. Sometimes our overabundance lines up with someone else's need at JUST the right time to make a perfect swap. Such was the case with our lemon shortage/egg surplus.
Enter Craigslist and a local gardener who had an abundance of lemons. He hated to see them go to waste. We had an overstock of farm-fresh, free-range chicken eggs. This combined surplus/shortage made for a perfect swap. Two dozen eggs provided us enough lemon juice to provide lemonade for a little over a month.
Now we're out.
Time for another swap.
