For those unfamiliar with the term, this allows people to purchase a percentage of a local farmers yield and then you pick up said percentage each week during the growing season.
This is our first year doing CSA (or as a friend calls it "the cargo cult") and I like it, but we have a hard time eating all the produce each week. Maybe if we were feeding a family of 4 or splitting it with another household I wouldn't feel so wasteful. I've managed to prepare most of the stuff we get, but some things ended up in the compost despite my best efforts. I like the concept but it makes me reluctant to do it again next year, especially since I seem to be the only one at our house who makes any attempt to eat the produce each week. Granted he will eat stuff if I make it, but he takes not take any intitative to prepare anything himself. Frustrating.
This Sunday is Yarn Harlot in Eau Claire, WI. I think it will be fun!
