Week 4 Newsletter July 8, 2010


What’s Growing Today?

Things are growing, although I wish it would rain. Not as much as last year, but just every night after dark – is that too much to ask for???

Peas are here! YAY! Shell peas and sugar snap – both extremely delicious, but I am biased. The green and purple beans should be ready in the next week or two. There are tomatoes coming, but still as green as the weeds as of yet.

I thinned the purple carrots and threw them in your baskets along with a purple baby onion, and some oregano – I was day dreaming about beef stew while I was tying them together. Maybe a good idea for dinner, if this muggy weather ever breaks…
