    Shavoa Tov,

    The appropriately seasonal rains we have had in the last few weeks are magical. We asked for it and we got it.
    So, I'm reminding you that there is no rain without mud! And mud is not dirt.! Please accept it with understanding.
    We have noticed something - on an office work day it rains; on a garden and packaging day it becomes clear and relatively pleasant to work outside. We don't know how this happens, but we are pleased.

    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.

    Hello everyone,
    In Greek mythology there was a partnership between Flora, the goddess of plants, and human beings to ensure vegetation as food for the human species. Flora was aided by the three daughters of Zeus and Themis, who were the goddesses of the seasons. The sea nymphs protected the crops of the sea and rivers and Zeus, from his abode on Mt. Olympus, assured that there was water to wet the remaining areas. In days like these, when it is not precisely sure what season we are in, they also had Diana, goddess of hunting and the moon, and her brother Apollo, God of the sun.

    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.
