CSA Workshare

This year I’ve been doing a workshare at my CSA. I work every other Saturday on the farm to pay for my share of organic veggies. So far I’ve gotten to ride on the transplanter, plant, weed, harvest, and pet lots of farm kitties 🙂 It’s really helped me to appreciate the hard work that goes into bringing people in the area their hand picked produce each week. Since I’m aspiring farmer, it’s also helping me get a feel for if this is really want to do “when I grow up”. (IT IS!)
