I was really impressed with the operation, considering I had never really seen anything of that scale before, even if it was only on about 4 acres. Truly amazing what they do!
The most-impressive thing I saw was the hoop-house filled with grafted tomato plants. They grew sturdy, disease-resistant tomato plants and weaker heirloom tomatoes. Then, they painstakingly grafted the heirlooms onto the sturdy stock. Which means a better yield of heirloom tomatoes, woot!
We're sharing our full share with another couple and their toddler, not being sure that either of us could handle a full share on our own. With that, we can mix and match what we get each week, and maybe even do food preservation projects together.
