Impressive First Year CSA

By: Elizabeth Weir    (Jul 16, 2010)

This was our first time doing a CSA and as I understand it, it is the first year Taproot offered a CSA. George and Ola have been great. The vegetables are fantastic. The heads of lettuce are works of art. They are gorgeous and as big as my head. Our biggest problem is that we can't eat all the veggies fast enough! They are generous with the amount they give you. My gripes are few. I guess the one veggie related gripe is that we sometimes get the occasional oddball veggie, like kohlrabi. I tried it. It was ok, but not a staple that I turn to. However, that isn't often and I'm happy to have the chance to try something new. My only other complaint might be that I don't like having to drive into the city of reading to pick up my box. I try to avoid the city at all costs and it would be great if they could find a location in West Reading or Wyomissing. Those things are petty in the long run. George and Ola do a great job. They are communicative. They always send an e-mail preceding the pick-up listing what will be in our box and if there are some oddballs, they give ideas on how to prepare them. Loved the fresh garlic! Never realized how much better that tastes than the cured stuff at the grocery store. I highly recommend this CSA.
