Will you join me this summer in a Community Supported Agriculture subscription? I've found it's the best way to not only try new varieties of just picked that morning super fresh fruits and vegetables but also to save a farm (New York State is losing farms at an alarming rate).


And, once again, thanks to JUST FOOD's good work there are 20 (that is a huge number) of new CSA partnerships in NYC and there are STILL SOME WEEKLY FARM SHARES left for the 2010 season.

I'm particularly excited about the Brooklyn Bridge CSA and Crown Heights South CSA that are both new this season because one of my favorite Suffolk County farmers, especially for their Asian greens, will be partnering with them for the summer --the amazingly innovative Sang Lee Farms (North Fork Long Island). Garden of Eve, another favorite farm also from the North Fork, I trust will provide their shares with the delicious and earthy fingerling potatoes that I love and the many varieties of garlic they are known for also. And, keep an eye out for the free range heritage turkeys at Thanksgiving that rule Garden of Eve's farm in October and November.
