This year we joined a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) farm. We bought a half share for both the summer and fall program. We’ve been doing it for a month now, and I think I like it. The vegetables can be unusual (lettuce of course, but also garlic curls, sugar snap peas, swiss chard, baby bok choi, salad turnips, sorrel, basil, summer squash, cilantro, escarole, dill and tatsoi). We pick up our veggies every Tuesday at Potomac Vegetable Farms in Vienna. Our usual veggie pattern (lettuce salad, frozen beans, frozen spinach, frozen broccoli) has benn overturned by all these fresh veggies – we’re having very fresh salads, greens sauteed in olive oil, and pestos for pasta, very tasty.
