Although I grow a majority of the fruits and vegetables we enjoy throughout the year, there are always some things that I just don't bother with in our relatively small garden - often because they are things better grown by the wonderful farm families that surround us here in rural Virginia Beach. I buy these fresh fruits and vegetables from the farm stands that run from Stoney's Produce, right on First Colonial Road all the way down Princess Anne Road to our neighborhood. Two of my favorites are strawberries and sweet corn, both fabulous fresh eats that are grown abundantly by our local farms. This brings me to the concept of joining a CSA for the season.
Word to the wise - as with all CSA programs in our area - sign up FAST. The openings are limited and there is always more demand than the farms can supply.
