A couple years back, I had a share in a CSA – Community Support Agriculture – which I loved. You can find entries on it by searching CSA here at my blog. It was a one year experience which I am still trying to repeat. I seem to have issues finding another farm that wanted or had shares available but I have taken that issue into my own hands this summer.
Since I rent, I don’t want to dig up someone else’s property. I suppose if this year goes well I may discuss this with my landlord next year. I have a small container garden. I am the only one in my family that loves tomatoes so not too many of those and squash and swiss chard – a find from my 2007 CSA – and two herbs – peppermint and basil. Like I said, small, but I am loving it.
My garden is coming along and here are recent pictures of the plants.
Now be gentle, all. Realize that we had a hard frost the first week of June. I live in a growing area where, well, weather makes the growing season short.

Your pots look so much better than my sad attempt at a garden this year. Apparently I picked a plot of land that gets no sunshine. I planted: tomatoes, cucumbers, basil, oregano, and swiss chard. I got a weekly box of produce one year from a CSA and fell in love with swiss chard, too. I just picked up a bunch at Wegman’s last week and sauteed it with their basting oil, a little bit of salt and threw in some suremi. It was delicious! Your chard looks great. All of my stuff is, and I am not lying, the same size as when I planted it over a month ago. It’s depressing.
Wow! Your garden looks great. I tried pot gardening last year, was so excited, but it was disatrous. Nothing grew in those darn pots!
