Want to grow food in your backyard without getting your hands dirty? Just hire someone else to do it for you! The New York Times covers services catering to "lazy locavores," including personal vegetable gardening from MyFarm in San Francisco, locally grown mail-order meals from Three Stone Hearth in Berkeley, and locally grown fruit deliveries to your office from The Fruitguys. If you do like getting your hands dirty by gardening or cooking, maybe this is your chance to start a new locavore-friendly business.
