A Season’s Worth

A Season’s Worth

Claire Lindsey

Farmer Lily Walter distributes her vegetables in a CSA structure at Slip Away Farm, and each week lucky customers travel to the farm on Chappaquiddick Island to pick up a box of the perfect produce at that exact time of the season. The farm stand is also stocked if you swing by unannounced.

Here’s a look at the produce, organized by type of vegetable, and a graph so you can see how many of each type are available during each month.
