    2. We're taking a break from cheeses from Har Haruach, due to the goats' pregnancy.
    3. An Idea - a dear friend recently gave a wedding gift that is unique, healthy and ecologically sound to his newly wed friends. He gave them one months supply of fresh vegetables from the garden. (I feel as if it was a gift to me.

    Hi Friends,

    A new year has arrived with promising signs of rain. How great!

    As usuall there may be changes in the box - we may need to start notifaying the contents on picking day.

    Sweet potato - Ipomoea batatas ,is from the Convolvulaceae family, to which many plants belong. Perhaps you are acquainted with other decorative plants and "weeds" from the family. The name Havalve'im, in Hebrew, comes from the word Hevel, rope, because is grows stringy and wraps itself around like a rope.

    Dear all,

    What a first rain !!!! what a way to start.....It is difficult to describe in words the happiness and the wealth we felt this morning in the garden, I quoted and tried to explain three meanings to the word "Yo're" (the first rain of the season).

    1. "שמורה את הבריות להטיח גגותיהן ולהכניס פירותיהן ולעשות כל צורכיהן" )Babylon Talmud). In free translation - we see that it is possible to begin to plant for the winter.

    This week there are lots of "or-ors" because we have not been able to accurately predict what will be ready. Many crops in the garden are finishing and many others are beginning - very appropriate as we approach Rosh HaShanah.

     

    At these times the sprouts remind me that in every thing, even the smallest thing, there is great potential (in English we say "as insignificant as a turnip seed.

    Hello All,

     

    I have included some great photos in this email but they don't seem to be sent. Whoever has a moment is invited to open the folder attached hereto.

     

    In the garden we are still experiencing the difficulties of summer. The variety of vegetables is not great and the plants are producing a reduced amount of fruit, consistant with the burden they've gone through. The cucumbers are slowing their pace but we've already planted the next cycles, and we are heartily encouraging them (hopefully they wil be giving fruit soon.
