I am excited to report that we joined a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) and will pick up our first "share" this week on Wednesday. We're starting out with a half share which means we'll get a bag of produce every other Wednesday. The farm, Orchard Pond Organics, is not far from our house (off Meridian between Summerbrooke and Bannerman, for those of you familiar with Tallahassee). We're looking forward to trying some new things and eating more vegetables!

I'll report in after I pick up our first share, but in the meantime, here are pictures from the farm to hold you over. Most of the items we'll get (since it's fall/winter) will be greens (both hardy and delicate, at least until it frosts here) and root vegetables. The farm grows both familiar varieties (spinach, kale, radishes, sweet potatoes) and more exotic ones (such as mizuna (a Japanese green) and daikon radishes (also Japanese - these are really big compared with traditional radishes).
