Sign up season for CSAs (community sponsored agriculture) is upon us. Have you registered? I joined Brooklyn Bridge CSA last year and we loved the fruits and veggies we got from farmer Fred each week. (Essentially, you pay the farmer ahead of time for seeds and other capital. Then you share the bounty at harvest time)
Here’s my son, then 4, at distribution. Counting and weighing the carrots, beets and berries are great for math skills.
