After one half of a year of produce...

By: Kim Parker    (Oct 28, 2010)

I am very pleased both with the variety and the quality of the items I receive.

Quite frankly, I avoided vegetables in the grocery store because of the lack of taste. We joined the coop in the middle of the year (we were early adopters as well) and we started with a double share and stayed with it. I love the taste and freshness of the items we receive! We've had loads of tomatoes, green, red, and hot peppers, half a dozen different kinds of squash, spinach, radishes, almost a dozen varieties of melons, beans, okra, canned tomatoes, salsa, sprouts, spices (rosemary, basil, etc) and other wonderful goodies. It's the rare week when I don't receive something I've not had before and it challenges me to try something new!

Like all families today, we have to work to eat a home. But when I go to restaurants, I walk away disappointed. Extras go in the freezer or get canned. One thing I love the most is the tips I get for other items like berries, pastured eggs, and other farm items.

Some people I've spoken to are challenged by not being able to go to the grocery and pick out what they want, "normal" veggies. Well, normal is a setting on the dryer and what the person I'm talking to considers regular veggies, I do not. I'll admit, sometimes when I've not read my newsletter about what is coming, I pick an item up and think "what IS that?", but a quick e-mail and I know what to do with it.

Kim and Garth are responsive to what we've asked for and when it's mentioned, I'm either told when they will begin growing that depending on weather or they add it to their list and several weeks later it's in my box, grown specially for me.

Now THAT's a responsive CSA! Love 'em.
