"So the question arose in my mind that day: Did I choose to plant these potatoes, or did the potato make me do it? In fact, both statements are true. I can remember the exact moment that the spud seduced me, showing off its knobby charms in the pages of a seed catalog."
Michael Pollan: "Botany of Desire"

There are many reasons to eat locally, organically and sustainably: for better health, to preserve the environment and for social and economic reasons, but perhaps the most enjoyable reason is because of the superior taste. Imagine biting into a crunchy sugar snap pea still warm from the sun. Fresh basil and oregano sprinkled on top of melted cheese? Kale lightly tossed with olive oil, sprinkled with sesame seeds and bit of salt and then lightly baked until crisp for a healthy new snack. Maybe your favorite is the bright orange bell pepper that can be eaten like an apple on your way to work? The reasons to eat local, freshly harvested food multiply by leaps and bounds when you imagine the feast that arrives at your home every week.

Harry's tomato-hating nieces and nephew consumed every Green Zebra tomato that came off the vines during one visit. We must constantly warn CSA members and farmers' market patrons not to sample the strawberries, Sugar Snap Peas or Sungold cherry tomatoes if there are family members awaiting the produce back home!

The only way to get fresher vegetables is to grow them yourself!

While we love the usual varieties of vegetables, we also grow some things that you may never have tried... daikon radishes, tomatilloes, edamame, kohlrabi - just to name a few. We hope you will enjoy exploring new tastes and expanding your sources for good health.
