    Hi,

     

    A lot of rain fell!

     

    Our situation is now twice as good as it was when I last wrote about the water that falls from the heavens. We have now reached 42% of the average annual rainfall, whereas before we were at 21%. This is ADVANCE # 1, and the most meaningful.

     

    ADVANCE #2:

     

    Today I finished the first round of decisions regarding the species of vegetables to plant for the summer, and in the following days they will be planted in seed trays.

    Shalom everyone,

     

    Last week I wrote about the heat and thereafter an update about the hail. Now we are recuperating in the garden. Lucky there is cooperation.

     

    Every day since the hail that did considerable damage, there are vegetables that are looking better and better. There are also those that look worse with the passage of time. I very much hope that there won't be changes in the mix of veggies in the boxes. Generally, it seems to me that the majority will recuperate, although the hail returned us (like the game snakes and ladders) a month or two back.

  • Hi 12/02/09

    Hi,

     

    This morning (still dark) I woke up to the wonderful ring of tapping on my roof. I was so happy. When I got to the garden, I was surprised to see that hail had fallen. HAIL!*

     

    As I looked around, I found a pile of hailstones that had not yet melted and each one was the size of a marble.

     

    The lettuces look like they were already a salad, broccoli with broken heads, cabbages exploding from slashings. Green beans and peas that I have waiting for to bear fruit are lying on the ground instead of climbing their trellises.

    Hello Friends,

     

    The heat causes everything to move faster. I hope that there will not be changes in the contents of the boxes from today until distribution day. It is very difficult to plan under these conditions.

     

    Just as it is pleasurable and enjoyable to us in the warm weather, plants also "blossom" from this enjoyment. They grow faster, and "run" to their finish line - to flower and produce seeds. You can see development from day to day.

  • Hello Friends 2/2/09

    Shalom to everyone,

     

    First of all, I want to remind everyone of the change in the delivery day.

     

    If The lack of rain and cold weather is the result of global warming, it is happening faster than expected and we are in trouble.

     

    From the beginning of this winter, only 115 mm of rain fell in Jerusalem. The multi-year average rainfall here is 554 mm. accordingly, we have so far received only 21% of the expected rainfall for the winter, and only 36% of the expected rainfall up to this date.
