Whats happening to your CSA ? Questions on Ed Levine's tweet

Ed Levine's tweet last night:

farmers getting killed in the NE this year: too much rain, now "late blight" is killing the tomatoes and potatoes. they need our support.

Two questions:
1) What is the best way to support the local farmers (besides a Willie Nelson concert). The obvious answer is to purchase more, but in this case, the farmers may be short on crops to sell.

2) What happens to your CSA shares if your farm's tomato and potato crops are wiped out? I would assume it's part of the risk associated with a CSA, but curious what actually happens.
