This may seem like an unusual post but I have had this same conversation with several people. “We love the idea of getting produce from you, BUT I want to have my own garden as well. Does it make sense to have both?”
Our answer is: YES! Unless you have a serious addiction to plants like Bonnie and I, you probably won’t have the diversity available in your home garden that we will have available for you from ours.
So, what do we recommend you grow in your garden to compliment your CSA share?
*These items will be available in your CSA share.
For the canners – While we anticipate having some additional produce available for canning, our production is designed only for filling the CSA shares. For the serious canner, we would recommend planting at least a portion of your canning produce in your own garden. I will be planting pickling cucumbers, tomatoes, the fixings for salsa and beans in my personal garden for my canning (YES, in addition to the CSA garden I am crazy enough to have a personal garden!!!).
We are always available to answer any garden questions that you have about your own garden. If we don’t know the answer – we love to research and learn more about plants.
