Welcome July!

Dare we hope for some calmer weather? I think we should! Although, the NOAA pictures for the upcoming week look exactly the same as last week…

Meanwhile, Week 5 of the CSA came and went without a hitch. Mainstay items for the week were Escarole, Lettuce, Cukes or Zukes and Garlic Scapes.

Additional items to choose from included Rhubarb, Strawberries, Kale, Kohlrabi, Radishes, Honey and Scallions.

The U-Pick Herb bed is absolutely full with Parsley, Cilantro, Savory, Marjoram, Dill, Oregano, Sage, Rosemary, Thyme, Chives, and Tea herbs such as Bergamot, Anise Hyssop, Chamomile and Lemon Balm.

Peas are in full blossom with lots of small pods ready to fill up!

And, to end the week beautifully, almost 100 beautifully wrapped chickens went to their new homes while our freezer is re-stocked as well. Things feel bountiful after a lot of hard work and even a little play. The hammock is calling!
