Re: too much of a good thing?

I almost clicked this and then realized you hadn't annotated WFS or not. So....is it?

It's wfs, just a pic of a fridge with a bunch of fruit and vegetables. Is it your share of a CSA?

Re: too much of a good thing?

This is stuff from my garden, and some of the cucumbers came from a
buddy's garden. Everything is coming ripe right now, and I'm running out of space. This weekend we'll start preserving/making pickles, and I've had more grilled veggies than any human should this week. Green beans are still a few weeks out, I planted them late. The peppers are
just getting started, and the squash/zucchini/cucumbers are coming faster than I can deal with.
What's a CSA? Is that some kind of community garden?

Re: too much of a good thing?

CSA = community supported agriculture. You basically buy a share of the farmer's harvest, and also share the risks of farming. If you pay up front and a huge storm wipes out the crop, you're toast. On the other hand, if there's a good harvest, you get lots of fresh veggies.

Don't vegetables go bad in the fridge within like 2 weeks?

If they don't, I'm generally concerned. Why?

Yes. And? People have been using various methods to preserve the harvest for thousands of years.
