own a share of your farmer's market

if you missed yesterday's liberty farmer's market and cant make it to the fresh farm market near the white house tomorrow, head to clagett farm to pick up your share of the bounty. Clagett Farm is a working farm, owned and operated by the Chesapeake Bay Foundation (CBF) in Upper Marlboro, Maryland. they grow vegetables for their Community Supported Agriculture program, raise grass fed cattle and have a native tree nursery on more than 285 acres. you can purchase a `share’ to become a member of the farm, and each week, from mid-May to mid-November, they divide their harvest by the number of shares. members can visit the farm at any time to check it out or to harvest as much as they want from the items on the you-pick list. The you-pick list might include flowers, herbs, and any vegetables in abundance, such as tomatoes or collard greens. maybe, pumpkins? i think i am going to do this if only for the vegetable-growing-knowledge i hope to gain...not to mention the deliciousness!
