After what seemed like too long, the CSA has finally started.
And what a great day to start.

We have never delayed the start of CSA two weeks, like we did this year. It was a hard thing to do. The anticipation was killing us. Now, in retrospect, it was the right decision. We are so glad to have this variety of crops to share on the first week.
The asparagus is from our neighbors, the Catalanos. Everything else is from our farm.
The strawberries are delicious, but few. Strawberries this year will be underwhelming. It just isn't shaping up to be a good strawberry year. The winter was hard on them, spring was so late, and we had some problems with weed control. All this to say, you may see strawberries in pints more often than quarts this year.
It was so great to see so many returning members and meet you new members today.
