Community Supported Agriculture

I can't believe I haven't done this until now, but I signed up for a CSA this year! Roots and Shoots is an organic farm just outside of Ottawa. CSA members were invited for a tour and potluck a couple of weeks back.

We saw their fields, and learned about their growing methods, like row cover for pest control, how the irrigate and such.

They have a greenhouse as well.

Seeds getting started, waiting to go into the ground.
My first delivery starts next week and I can't wait!

How about those Hakurei Turnips?! Weren't they just great? (I also am doing CSA with Roots and Shoots for first time. I missed the potluck though)

I love those turnips! Happy to hear from another R&S CSAer. :)
