    Shavoa Tov,

    NOTICES:
    1. I'm sorry about the shortages last week of cucumbers and tomatoes - this is the period when the fields are transitioning. There are major shortages in the market in general and their prices went up. It will probably stay this way several more weeks.
    2. The summer fruits are disappearing: corn, mango, figs, grapes.... So please take into account that there is uncertainty about them.

  • Waitting for rain 13-11-11

    Dear Friends,

    That's it. It's been two weeks since Sukkot, all of the pilgrims should have arrived home by now, we've all prepared our homes for winter, and now we need some rain!
    So we could, should and must hope, invite, dance and pray for rain!!!!
    Stories I've heard:
    About a hundred years ago in the USA Charles Hatfield, a former sewing machine salesman, claimed that he could cause rain to fall by shooting chemicals into the sky. San Diego was going through 2 years of draught and invited him, for pay, to come and bring them some rain.

  • Sweet Swiss Chard and rain6-11-11

    Dear Veggie Lovers,

    The cold slows the growth of summer crops and last week I had to fight other farmers and suppliers to get the required amount of cucumbers. In the coming weeks there may be a shortage of cucumbers mainly (but also many of the other summer crops - zucchini, eggplant, basil ...) until the new agricultural areas will begin to bear fruit. Prices of cucumbers may rise but on the other hand the prices of winter crops, leafy and roots, will drop due to acceleration of green growth, and also their variety will improve.
