    Good morning,

     

    This week I will be traveling to the US to visit family, so I would like to notify you as follows:

    Since I would like to pick and organize the boxes for you this week, they will be delivered on tuesday. Please, let me know your additions by Monday at noon.
    In the next two weeks, deliveries will be on the regular days, but there can be no changes to the boxes. Please do not make special requests. Also, there will be no cheeses and fruits.
    this week - feel free with the requests.

    Hi,

    I'm sorry I replaced some of your lettuces last week, they were really not up to standard...

    A summer question - how do you keep your greens fresh and crispy and not limp and wilty?
    A short cold rinse and a good drying (or not even rinse at all), wrap in cloth or thick paper to capture the moisture. Close in a plastic bag and store in the fridge until used.

    If you're not planning to use them in the next couple of weeks, here is some advice from Shoshana from Jerusalem:
    "Lately I started sun-drying the leaves that I didn't use, such as mint, parsley and celery.

    Hi,

     

    The garden is all summer !! There is one last cycle of root celery, that will be given out this week. I was hoping it would grow bigger, but it has it's own opinion... My apologies (great opportunity for chicken soup with celery - the last until next winter).

     

    I'm attaching the water-conserving bottle-in-in-toilet-tank trick, for those who didn't understand what I was talking about.

     

    This week I sowed more in trays: tomatoes - cherry-Perry - small & pear shaped; chard - a bit too late; and Squash - large, small, round, flowery, green, orange, yellow, spaghetti.

    Hi friends,


    The pumpkins are starting to spread out!!!


    Last week was all about hanging up the climbing plants, which we are trying to do quickly because we are late. So, to speed the process, I bought a "helmania" (a hand-held thing to bang large spikes into the ground), and we are suspending easy-to-climb fencing from them. I really like working by hand, but this gets the job done easier, better and faster.


    Squash and Tripoli Pumpkins are already climbing.

    Hi,

     

    The Shavuot Holiday came at a perfect time. It is really the transition between spring and summer and all of the plants in the garden are changing. There are lots of cute little first-fruits all over the garden. Each new fruit is beautiful and exciting and I'm eager to send it to you, but there aren't enough for all the boxes. These first-fruits are currently mixed with fruits from the greenhouses, but soon enough they will take over the box !

     

    We're continuing with the round, tasty zucchinis.
