2015 spring-summer CSA.

It's time to purchase shares for the spring-summer CSA season!

The season begins mid-May and runs through late August. Each share is eight total harvests valued at $12 (or greater), every other week, for a total cost per share of $96. Veggie enthusiasts might wish to consider two CSA shares in order to receive harvests every week as opposed to every other week.

A CSA is a great way to eat in-season. This year's harvests will start off with turnips, beets, strawberries, and various greens for salads or for braising. Later on we'll begin to see lettuces, pearl onions, snow peas, blueberries, and some other leafy greens (including mustards, spinach, arugula, escarole, and chard) as the season unfolds. We also anticipate bush beans, broccoli raab, carrots, and fennel several months from now. Toward the end of the spring-summer CSA season we may be including corn, tomatoes, basil, summer squash, eggplant, and peppers, and those summer crops will carry us into our summer-fall season's shares.

To sign up for our CSA, or to reach out with your questions and comments, please email us.

Given the unusually warm spring we've had this year, we took a gamble on sowing some yellow crookneck squash on March 22nd. It came up!
