    Hi,

    What fun to write to you after working in the garden.

    Slowly slowly almost all of the garden is summer crops. The last of the winter crops are still in our boxes and in the garden patches they are vacating we are now planting and sowing summer crops - different species of lettuce, an assortment of Cucurbitaceae, tomato, eggplant, beans ....

    Today while weeding a new bean patch, I thought of the legumes (which include beans) and how they enrich the soil naturally (maybe I'll continue with this idea next week).

  • organic kale

    Good week everyone!

    This week, I'm writing about the purple wavy leaves that were in our box last week, those that not everyone could identify.

    They are kale and I'm happy to write about them. Kaale is considered a delicacy by the English-speakers and I am frequently asked if I grow them. So yes, I do - they were delivered in our boxes several times recently and will be again, but not for much longer.

  • inbetween season

    נכתב ע"י maggie בתאריך 12 באפריל 2010 |

    Hi Folks,

    How are you?

    We are continuing to prepare for summer. The seeds are quickly sprouting and we already see beautiful small healthy seedlings of pumpkins and beans. This year, I promised myself to string them up on time and we are already preparing the structure at the time of the planting. It's important that we not wait until the plants have developed, so as not to injure them.

    We are still in the transition season as seen by the contents of the boxes - they contain winter leaves and roots as well as the first fruits of summer squash.

  • organic mustard wild and cultivated 6-4-10

    Hi all,
    It is really spring, maybe even summer, in the garden. The green rows of leafy winter crops are gradually turning into rows of fruit-bearing summer plants (squashes, zucchinis, tomatoes, green beans...). You probably notice that the veggie boxes are containing fewer green leaves than in earlier months. Now, almost all the vegetables fit into the box...well, almost. Soon all will fit into the boxes because our summer vegetables, actually fruits (that's what tomatoes, cucumbers, squashes really are; see last week's mail), are more compact that leaves.
