Call me pollyanna, but I'm still refusing to believe "the farm"is going to lose it's entire tomato and potato crop. Even though, "some of the potato varieties are dying and the tomatoes don't look that good" (Desiree's words). And all of the surrounding farms have lost their crops to Late Blight. Sigh.
WhatACard lives in the 'burbs of Boston with her husband, twins born in 2005, and a singleton who arrived in the summer of 2009. They belonged to the Waltham Fields Community Farm CSA for two years, and after a move, joined Dragonfly Farms CSA. For 2013, they'll be members of Jones Farm CSA. The family also enjoys shopping at local farm stands and farmers' markets, and grows their own small vegetable and herb garden.
Julie lives in Western, MA with her husband, son who was born in 2005 and the rascally Ratchet (otherwise known as the dog). They belong to the Holiday Brook Farm CSA and Cricket Creek Farm CSA as well as Berkshire Organics. They are also frequent visitors to the farm stand at the end of their street, which is open from July through October and has some of the best corn in the Berkshires!
