Support your local CSA

Last night after I racked the altbier to secondary fermentation I decided to wander on over to Tim Flemings and see if our family might be enjoying one more week of the CSA. Sure enough there was a box with our name on it on the porch. It also included a note that said we'll have one more week of greens.
Akaogi Farm will have enough greens to provide through the end of the year, so we have the option to purchase one more month for 60.00. The veggies in the picture are an example of what 15.00 a week gets you in Vermont. Community Supported Agriculture is the hot ticket.
By the way everything is local, and organically grown. If you are looking to reduce your carbon footprint, eat healthy, and support your local farmer please consider joining a CSA with the next growing season. It's a win-win situation for everyone. Besides, how else would you learn about freaky new vegetables? This weeks box included kale, cabbage, Baby Bok Choi, turnips, santoh-sai. lettuce, tatsoi spinach, and carrots.
