Capella CSA: Great Quality, Variety, and Quantity
By: (Jun 3, 2013)
This will be our 4th year doing the summer and fall shares at Capella. We return each year because one good year's experience has been followed by an even better one the following year. Farmers Jennifer and Dave Kangas are committed to offering organic produce with lots of information for us about how they grow despite the challenges of weather and pest or disease possibilities. For those challenges, they use different varieties of each vegetable which I now understand is part of sustainability but as a consumer makes for a very exciting selection of produce. For example, there are weeks when we can choose among hot to mild peppers, maybe 10 varieties in one week. The heirloom tomatoes come in many colors and sizes, with taste that is out of this world! The greens, lettuces, and herbs are picked the day of pick up and are aromatic and beautiful. The garlic is wonderfully pungent and keeps for months, as do the root vegetables. I like being able to select the offerings each week as compared to a packed box, too, as then I know what is in the box. The fall share and Thanksgiving box will make your holiday memorable. The pie pumpkins are dense, not watery, and so sweet. Potatoes including fingerlings are great in fall stews and roasting. To conclude, Capella grows great food!
