What grew in 2004?

The 2004 growing season was yet another difficult one. With very few consistent periods of sun many plants refused to flower and the fields were often filled with tractor trapping mud. Tropical storms dropping up to 14 inches of rain at a time certainly didn't help. Still SPROUT was the only CSA in the area that didn't canel delivery due to the storms. The Phillips consistently managed to put a wide ranges of items in the bins even if quantities were sometimes smaller than we prefer. A breakdown of what was delivered each week is posted below.
