I hope this means the pool of local vegetables is widening, not that people are shifting from CSAs to homegrown. More: http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/a...

    I'd heard this anecdotally from a coworker who shops at a farm store. I figured it had to do with the economy, not from any trend toward CSAs or locavorism.
