Sara Kate's musings on her summer garden-to-be got us thinking about CSAs and farm shares. They fill up fast, and now is definitely the time to contact your favorite farm to reserve your spot for weekly produce! Will you be signing up?
When we talked about our CSA experiences at the end of the season last fall, many of you weren't sure if you'd be signing up again. There was a lot of discouragement about wasted food and frustrations over how limited many of the boxes were.
But the CSA veterans among us were also encouraging. Stories from these folks made us think that maybe doing a yearly CSA just takes practice - the first year is tough, but then you start getting a feel for the ebb and flow of your particular farm and the growing seasons.
Are you doing a CSA again or thinking of doing one? If so, will you be sticking with the same farm or switching to a new one?
