Hope’s Edge: My CSA
Hope’s Edge CSA (Community Shared Agriculture) is in full swing now.
Going out there each Tuesday is one of the highlights of my week.
Last week, the road was lined with a wildflower in the Valerian family–which is also sometimes called “Wild Heliotrope,” which it is not. It is, however, very fragrant.
I picked two quarts of strawberries that smelled and tasted like sweet perfume. Delicious!
Farmer Tom was haying–and we were meant to have some hot, clear days in a row, so that was a good time to hay.
I look for this bunch of wild flowers on the paved road every year.
I think they are in the “fireweed” family. I’d have to look them up again to be sure.
