Long live the salad

By Melinda Mawdsley

A few coworkers have asked me if I'm participating in the CSA again this year, so I thought I would take a moment to answer that question.

YES!

The acronym CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture, and I have been a part of the Cameron Place CSA  for three years. To participate, I pay a lump sum to the CSA during the spring ($415 broke up into three payments this year) to pick up organic produce weekly from early June until — weather permitting — late September.

The first pickups are typically very green (lettuce, spinach, broccoli, cabbage, etc.) and this season has been no different.

I'm in Week 2, and I've already got the tasty fixin's for a lettuce topped with a summer treat...radishes.
