Last week was CSA Week-- a week to share about and celebrate Community Supported Agriculture. Just like last year, I'd like to take this opportunity to document what our CSA pickup looked like every week of the 2022 season. I put this together on Friday but didn't get around to posting it, so I suppose this is a better late than never situation!
We had a very slow start to the season last year, with cold and wet conditions until mid July keeping our harvests smaller and less diverse than we planned for the first half of the share. We more than made up for it, though, with an abundant second half! The photos below show this progression pretty clearly. One of the consequences of that slow start was that the share was a full 20 weeks-- in the 2021 season we hit the full value of the CSA after 19 weeks, and in some past seasons I think it's been just 18. We'll see what the weather has in store for the season ahead. At the moment it's pretty darn chilly out there, but the seeds we started last week (onions and a few flower varieties) are nice and cozy under grow lights in our house.
Okiedokie. Without further ado, here's my 'photo essay' of the 2022 CSA setup:
