There is a certain amount of stress leading up to the beginning weeks of the CSA program. After all, I owe these wonderful people. They give me their hard earned money, with the expectation that I deliver fresh food through the spring and summer season. A weight is lifted when I finally deliver.

I am happy to report that this was the earliest start for the CSA program yet. This week a proper salad was harvested for all of these fine folks, spinach, arugula, lettuce and radish. It feels good to be back for another go round.

Looking good for 2015, planted about 2000 and it looks to me that about 1998 have broken through.
