Sounds awesome. I have wanted to do this but only one person in my house eats produce (at least, happily & willingly).

nice! what CSA are you part of? i have been thinking about trying one out but am unsure if i want to risk having a mound of kale and mustard greens...

We joined the CSA for Valley Family Farm in Milan. I've been pretty happy with it--it was inexpensive for a half bushel, which is a great size for one couple. Sometimes we definitely have too much food, but the only thing we've had mounds of is potatoes, corn, kale and basil. I freeze the kale pretty much every week for winter soups. And the mustard greens and other bitter greens went into salads with milder lettuce. My palette definitely has gotten more sophisticated.

I may try a different farm next spring, just because I'm interested to know how the CSAs differ from farm to farm.
