Plowshare Community Farm By: Kathy Cole (Jan 29, 2012)
The first year experience with PCF exceeded my expectations.
The flavor of the fresh veges grown locally and available right out of the ground was amazing. I made more batches of tomatoe sauce than I have ever done with the pick your own sauce tomatoes and fresh herbs. My family said it was the best sauce ever. We don't have a large chest freezer so we couldn't freeze as much as was available to us. Anyone who did, froze many green, yellow, and purple beans. We did eat loads of beans fresh though. It was very convenient to be able to pick your own from sun up to sun down Mon-Sat. So one could go according to their own schedule. The carrots were especially good and sweet. The cabbage was also very good. If you don't have time or space or the right soil for a garden of your own this is a great alternative. Steve tries to plant varieties that you don' t always see at the grocery store as well as the basics.
