One thing I do love about summer is the load of vegetables that I get to pick up every week at my CSA. For those not familiar, a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) is a farm that brings their goodies into the city and sells them to urban black thumbs like myself that have no space for a garden of their own. We pay for the season in advance, which gives the farmer cash to grow his veggies, and we reap the benefits from June-October. (we also share in the risk so if there is no crop, it's too bad for us even though we paid.)
Here's a quick iPhone shot of my loot from yesterday:
We've got some mint, swiss chard, kale, peppers, garlic scapes (love!), kohlrabi, peas and more! For more summertime treats, click on the link below.
