CSA 2015: pathetic
Pathetic was the word that immediately came to mind when I picked up this week: small bunch scallions, boy choy, small bunch beets, 1 lb green tomatoes, 6 apples, 6 small peaches which again only rotted, a bonus: grab a handful of arugula. Meanwhile, this farm is advertising on social media, displaying what they have for sale at a local farmer's market: now I can confim where the lettuce, chard, kale, cabbage, red tomatoes, summer squashes, peppers, etc are. Additionally, they sell to a local Whole Foods, as well as local restaurants, and have run a few farm to table events (over $100/person). Really leaving a sour taste with me, as my gradmther would have said. One more week until this Summer season ends, usually a week is skipped, then a few weeks for my Fall share, at the conclussion of which, a letter will be sent.
