I am now an Ambrose Family Farm CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) member. On Wednesday evening, I picked up the first summer harvest from a volunteer’s home in Park West, Mt. Pleasant. We emptied the box and filled one of my canvas bags with cobs of corn, onions, carrots, yellow and green squash, cucumbers, beets, kale, turnips, and red potatoes. It all looks delicious (though I’m not sure what the boys will think of beets!)

I noticed about 30 names on their pick-up list. I am extremely impressed, and have yet to drive the 60 miles roundtrip to the actual farm. As I drove away, other members nodded and grinned as we knew our bags were full of a local treasure. The vegetable recipes are already brewing in my head. I’ll make vegetable soup to last the week and to share with neighbors, and I know Chad will enjoy the corn with cucumber sandwiches. Thank you, Ambrose Family Farm.
