bittersweet CSA...

not having the CSA this year has been bitter sweet... it started out as a great spring, but the rains... lack of sunshine... and then the over 90* heatwave for a few weeks here has practically stopped most growing in the garden...

(what is a CSA? it stands for Community Supported Agriculture... where people purchase shares of your garden and you offer them whatever is growing in that season! Isn't it great??)
so the relief is huge!

but the bitter part is not sharing the garden...
the CSA started out as a way for the very poor and elderly to be able to eat good healthy vegetables grown near them, at a reasonable price...

however... my dreams are still to have a full CSA running here at the farm — with the help of the nearby college students fulfilling their student "ground time" for such degrees as in Environmental Science, Agriculture, and even Cooking!
It is so great to see others so involved in the 'eating good'... remember however, that it is a lot of work for us growers to produce organic foods... the pests are tremendous here in the midwest... and it takes a lot of hands on time to 'get it under control'...

the farmer's market growers should be respected and admired I must say... for this little gardener has a lot to learn still in so many ways...
I'm still working on the bread video — we just borrowed my bro-in-laws video camera, so hopefully it will be done soon... and thank you all for inquiring about that... all your emails are so encouraging to do more videos...

You are all the best! and I noticed some new followers — but you must be anonymous because I can't see your cute icons to click on and give you a hello!! and a welcome to the farm!
so here goes:
Welcome to Farm! I truly hope you enjoy your stay... stay as a long as you would like... and I would love to hear from you!!

p.s. do you see those butterflies on the sedum? what does that say to you? is says: Autumn is coming!! hip! hip! hooray!!!
