community supported agriculture: season summary

Back in February, we signed up for a full veggie share with Abbondanza Organic Seed & Produce. From the beginning of June until the end of October, we received a pile of veggies once a week (sometimes every other week). This kind of farmer/consumer relationship is called community supported agriculture (CSA). It was a great experience that we will continue in future years. In all we received 225 lbs of veg.

  1. yeah! it's interesting that when you're immersed in the season, you're like "oh my god, not another 10lbs of cucumbers!". now that it's over though, i am emotionally craving all veggies that i am not going to eat for another 6 months.
