I have a little secret. SIW Vegetables ! I have a share in a CSA, that means Community Supported Agriculture. Basically it means for those of us unable to grow and tend a large garden , we can buy a share and reap the bounty of a fabulous farm garden. H. G. Haskell has run SIW for years, it's a terrific farm stand that sells all local produce including fabulous gems from his family's own Hill Girt Farm. The last two years, instead of buying spur of the moment, I have bought a share in his CSA, which provides me a boatload of fruits and veggies each week from mid-June through Halloween. As a sample this week I am in store for 8 ears of corn, a pound each of tomatoes, heirloom tomatoes, potatoes, doc. martin lima beans, squash, 2 onions, a head of garlic, a cucumber,1 pint of cherry tomatoes, basil,1 pint edamame, a bunch of flowers, 2 onions, a bell pepper, a hot pepper, 1/2 pound of eggplant, a canteloupe, a watermelon and half a pint of raspberries. Unbelievable right, all fresh picked and delicious. The stand also has bakery items from Le Bus bakery, DiBruno brothers fresh made mozzerella for your caprese salad and lots of olive oil and homemade tomato sauce if you don't already make your own. I've included a picture of one of the early weeks of the summer just so you can see how gorgeous the fresh picked produce looks ! Do a drive by, you'll be glad that you did ! SIW Vegetables is located at 4317 Creek Road. (And don't forget SIW for your Halloween pumpkins and gourds, they're the best)
