Spring is nearly here, a time when our thoughts turn to pea shoots, ramps, watercress, and other bright green, fresh edibles. It’s also when many Wisconsinites are signing up for Community Supported Agriculture, farms that offer boxes of food to members each week. Commentator Catherine Jagoe signed up for a farm share and tells us how she got more than just food.
