This year I joined a farm coop to get fresh produce, cheap. Windy Meadows Farm provides twenty two weeks of produce for a really reasonable price. Plus, here is the best part: YOU DON'T HAVE TO WORK ON THEIR FARM. The trouble with most of these crunchy-granola co-opy things is that they expect you to go out to their farms and provide slave labor in return for nice fresh crunchy veggies. I don't think so.... If I wanted to work on a farm, I'd plant a garden, or better yet, buy my own John Deere tractor and start a farm on the 5 acre bunny sanctuary that I call a backyard. So I happily joined and traipsed off this week to collect my goodies.
This is my friend, Laura, who also joined the coop, picking up produce this week.

The challenge this summer is going to be adapting my cooking to what they give me rather than what I feel like cooking. I'll let you know how it goes.
Anybody need some radishes?
