Where's my card?

It's official.  We've lived in Ann Arbor long enough to become card carrying hippies.  We wear the toe shoes and everything.  And now we've taken another step in that direction.

We joined a CSA, which stands for community supported agriculture. Or maybe community sustained agriculture. I make no claims of being a well informed hippy. Anyway, whatever it's called, it's like a pre-pay farmers market. We gave them a lump sum at the beginning of the growing season, and now we pick up a load of produce every week. It's a lot of produce so we're sharing it with Dave Hufnagel.

 This week was the first week where we got produce. It's been really dry so the haul was smallish but we're happy with it. We got half a dozzen small tomatoes, 7 ears of corn, a little cucumber, 2 zucchinis, 3 other squashes, a bunch of onions, some peppers, and 2 basil plants. Not bad. Not bad at all.
