Notes from the field:

We've been having intensly melon colored sunsets in this past week of heat - pink like watermelon and the oranges of canteloupes.  We have een able to see the daily growth in the garden.  Now we wait to receivve rain, all the while contemplating irrigation in support of the later season crops - fall carrots, potatoes, beets, parsnips and cabbage growing in our ground.

What's in the box?
  • Salad mix
  • Lettuce, Swiss Chard
  • Purple beans (turn green when cooked)
  • Bunched Carrots
  • Bunched Beets
  • 4 slicing cucumbers
  • I asian cucumber
  • 1 summer squash or zucchini

This months recipes appear adventurous!  They are all from the Farmer John Cookbook, an essential cookbook for seasonal eating.

We had a full table for dinner last night.  What a joy!  Roasted kale was devoured and green beans sauted with carrots, onion, garlic, and tossed with basil, honey, and greshly squeezed orange was a hit.  

Enjoy the box.

Lots more coming to fill your plates.
