Getting Vegetables Through a Local CSA

I'm getting my vegetables via CSA shares at a local farm only minutes from Milton and Alpharetta.

This year I belong to a CSA.  That stands for Community Supported Agriculture. I am receiving "shares" of vegetables from a local farm, Cane Creek Farm, in Cumming.  It is run by Lynn Pugh, who uses only organic farming practices in her fields.  The veggies are delicious and picked within 24 hours of my taking them home with me.    

Yes, I drive to a farm to get my vegetables.  Even I'm a little surprised I do it, but it's been such a great experience. The drive alone is my little bit of weekly therapy - north on the still scenic Hopewell Road out of downtown Alpharetta and just over the county line into Forsyth County where Lynn has her farm. 

So far my spring shares have consisted of bountiful green leaf lettuces, Swiss chard, arugula, turnips, collard greens, several varieties of radishes, spring beets, spring onions, scapes, carrots...

You should investigate this CSA thing.  Go to the Local Harvest website to find out more or the Georgia Organics to learn more about organic farming in Georgia.
