As the season is nearing a close, we are all thinking “what am I going to do for my summer produce?!?” Last summer I experienced that slap in the face sentiment as our fields were cover cropped and the CSA ended. I would angrily stomp around the vegetable section of the grocery store mumbling about the individually plastic-wrapped organic produce while missing the fun experimentation of coming up with recipes each week based on what was in the share. As solace, I’d have to remind myself that like the crushing humid heat of the summer, the end of the CSA season is only temporary.
Get amped early for next season’s crops (our farm team has already been ogling awesome, new crop varieties to bring to your table) by reserving your 2014-2015 CSA membership now. It’ nice to think about when your pacing the produce isle and is a huge help to us to get everything started again over the summer.
