What's in a Summer CSA share?

Are you interested in taking the leap to join the Ripley Farm CSA in 2018?  The most frequently asked question about our farm share is "What's in a box?" 

A typical Ripley Farm CSA box contains a seasonal blend of 7-9 organically grown vegetables emphasizing popular favorites accompanied by occassional specialties not found in grocery stores.  We aim to have a seasonal selection of greens for salads, easy veggies for raw snacking, and veggies for cooking in every week's box. 

Yeah, yeah, yeah.  But, what does this actually look like?  To get an idea of "What's in the box", take a peak at actual shares distributed in 2017.
