Last year, I tried hard to participate in the Garden Along with Norma, but failed miserably ... we simply do not have enough light coming in and growing food in pots is less than ideal.
So this year, I jumped when I got notice that our local CSA was taking new members on a first-come, first-served basis. There wasn't a guarantee that I'd get in, so I didn't say anything.
But today, I got word that there was space for me, for a 1/2 share (all I can handle!). I also purchased a full share of herbs.
My schedule doesn't allow me to participate as a worker, but I'm delighted to know I'll have fresh vegies, and that they'll also be locally and organically grown.
