A peek at what we grew in 2016
“The benefits I experienced as a CSA member included a much greater variety of locally produced, organic vegetables and herbs than I had made a part of my diet in the past. It also provided an opportunity to share the bounty with family and neighbors. I became good friends with my neighbors and shared meals! The variety of vegetables led naturally to my cooking a greater variety of meals….and when tomatoes were plentiful, I learned to can them!”
