We have been a member of Sunny Sky CSA since it's 2nd year of existence. For more than 20 years prior I had a large garden myself but had more difficulty each year with critters eating my produce. We have greatly enjoyed the beautiful, tasty, wide varieties of vegetables produced by Sunny Sky. There are only 2 of us, both hearty vegetable eaters, and after the first few boxes each year (early lettuces, onions, incredibly delicious strawberries, etc) we often have produce to also freeze or share with friends because we cannot keep up. We get unbelievably wonderful garlic every week except the first few boxes, some of which we save for winter months - and it is always far more flavorful than any purchased in a store. The greens are often perfect with little or no insect damage and I know from experience that swiss chard, for example, is very difficult to keep insect free. Not every vegetable every year is perfect but CSA, like everyone else, must depend on weather conditions which are never perfect for every vegetable every year. Other outstanding produce includes challenging-to-grow melons, leeks, varieties of basils and tomatoes, including heirloom varieties,and many varieties of potatoes as well as the more "usual" carrots, varieties of peppers, zucchini and squashes, etc. as well as herbs. We have always felt the quality and quantity of our vegetables is well worth the subscription price. We will enroll again for next year.
