So we decided to join a CSA this year. I spent a little time researching it, and finally settled on the New Century CSA in Circleville, Ohio. Aside from the awesome variety of veggies, what sold me on the idea completely was that one of the owners graduated from Asbury too - so I knew we were getting into this with good folks! :)

This picture is one weeks haul (minus the onions and bananas hiding in the back). I have been utterly amazed all summer at the quality of produce, the amount of variety and the TASTINESS of it all! We've experimented with all different kinds of veggies that we'd never have just bought at the store (i.e. okra) - and have definitely settled into a good habit of eating lots and lots of veggies. I am going to be very sad when the season ends. Good thing there's like 8 weeks left!

The best part is that it ended up being like $14 a week - which is far less than we would have spent buying all these goodies at the store!!

That looks wonderful! I hope next year we're able to join a CSA, but based on past research they fill up FAST because there are many around here. Maybe we'll get lucky! Enjoy your bounty!
