  • Organic Pumpkin

    נכתב ע"י maggie בתאריך 18 בספטמבר 2016 |

    It is now dark and foggy in the morning when we wake up. The Kale last week was nearly “fine”, our stock of dates is running low and in Kibbutz Samar they are preparing for the upcoming date harvest. We now have citrus fruit, the coconut oil is hardening, the squills are appearing - all are a sign that the heat and summer are leaving....

  • Organic summer and winter Squash

    נכתב ע"י maggie בתאריך 9 ביוני 2013 | , ,

    Cucurbitaceae - the kings of summer!
    Solanaceae- the queens of summer. We'll talk about them later in another weekly mail.
    Hot, hot, hot - but when we go out to the garden in the morning, we can see the pumpkin family spreading themselves below the sky as if to get as much heat and light from the hot hot hot sun. Some of the Cucurbitaceae species even have leaves that look like hands. They're spreading their hands to the heavens.
    In the middle of the day, during the hottest hours, the plant lowers his leaves and on really hot days even looks raggedy, as if attempting to turn the upper part of the leaf away from the Sun.

  • The time of the Pumpkin, part 2

    THE MAGIC PUMPKIN (curcubita) - from A to Z (actually aleph to taph, which more closely corresponds to the first letters of each comment, and, of course, there are a few english letters missing).

    A - Our ancestors remembered the zucchini and watermelons they ate in Egypt and longed for them when they were in the desert. (Numbers יא, ה) They probably intended cucumbers or maybe it was Fakus. In any case they are all members of the Cucurbitaceae family.

    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.

    Hello Dear Veggie Lovers,
    When the beautiful sweet pumpkin arrived from America to Europe, it was warmly welcomed. Shortly after, it was sold as sweet popular fast food at the sides of the roads. It's seeds (not necessarily roasted) were eaten like mixed nuts, almost like in the country.

    Their orange color is attributed to a rich composition of Lotaine and alfa and beta carotene. In our bodies these components become vitamin A. The pumpkin also contains vitamin C, nutritional fibers and calcium, potassium and magnesium.
