I got an email this week from Jeff and Sally (our CSA farmers)- after last summer's eventful trip to the ER for Scott, I found out that the over-abundance of certain vegetables could have been a contributing factor. Since the certain vegies were a big part of our CSA, we made a decision, therefore, to not sign up again this year and see if we can avoid further complications. I am going to try to grow some additional things myself (last year, I did some cherry tomatoes, leaf lettuce, jalapenos and green peppers, and of course the herbs- this year, I am thinking I will try to add some peas, green beans and  maybe 1 okra plant for me- if I can keep the rabbits away....101 market typically has great romas for making spaghetti sauce and salsa, zucchini and of course corn)
