Our last trip to the farm yesterday was uneventful and unceremoniously quick which is unusual. It has been a slow summer for the crops with the unseasonal heat, deer and lack of rain our share has been meek. The food is most certainly not the only reason we have joined our CSA though. Helping to pull carrots, picking (and eating) cherry tomatoes and blackberries right of the plant and talking with friends while the children play in the sandbox, those are the reasons we are members. The girls can play and learn how their food is grown. They take part in the whole process of eating from picking the food in the field to putting it on the table. I look forward to next year when we can do it all over again!
