CSA veggies are not perfect: they are perforated with nibbles on the leaves, marked by dirty smudges, and tend to spoil quicker than your typical grocery store vegetables. While one can see these as flaws, I see them as nature at work. While we want to eat food that is clean and critter free agriculture is not, and should not, always start out that way. This week proved that investing in a CSA means investing in eating real food with an earthy collection of greens, garlic, scapes, fava beans, lettuce, turnips as well as two cucumbers and a fennel bulb! Within a couple of weeks we will also be receiving fruit, so look out!
