In the last week, you’ve cowed a carrot, reamed out a rutabaga, and bitch-slapped a butternut squash.
It’s time for spring.
Get in the spirit with a Bluefield Farm CSA.
Lindsey Wittersheim and Eduardo Mena recently traded Chicago and New York, respectively, for 26 acres of bliss in North Manchester, Indiana. A pro grower, Wittersheim has lofty plans for her fields. Come harvest time in late May, you’ll reap the benefits: 21 weeks of organic, responsibly grown produce.
First, choose a membership level (full shares feed three to four people with eighteen pounds per week; half shares are perfect for couples at nine pounds).
Once spring arrives, nibble arugula, bok choy, sugar snap peas, and green onion; summer’s bounty includes sweet corn, tomatoes, summer squash, and melons galore (Wittersheim is a melon enthusiast); fall gets you kale, beets, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, winter squash, and beans.
Beating the blues just got easier.
To sign up, go to bluefieldfarm.com, $370-$670. Order by March 15 for $50 off full shares or $25 off half shares. Pickup locations vary.
