    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.

    Hi,

     

    This morning (still dark) I woke up to the wonderful ring of tapping on my roof. I was so happy. When I got to the garden, I was surprised to see that hail had fallen. HAIL!*

     

    As I looked around, I found a pile of hailstones that had not yet melted and each one was the size of a marble.

     

    The lettuces look like they were already a salad, broccoli with broken heads, cabbages exploding from slashings. Green beans and peas that I have waiting for to bear fruit are lying on the ground instead of climbing their trellises.

    Hello Friends,

     

    The heat causes everything to move faster. I hope that there will not be changes in the contents of the boxes from today until distribution day. It is very difficult to plan under these conditions.

     

    Just as it is pleasurable and enjoyable to us in the warm weather, plants also "blossom" from this enjoyment. They grow faster, and "run" to their finish line - to flower and produce seeds. You can see development from day to day.

    Shalom to everyone,

     

    First of all, I want to remind everyone of the change in the delivery day.

     

    If The lack of rain and cold weather is the result of global warming, it is happening faster than expected and we are in trouble.

     

    From the beginning of this winter, only 115 mm of rain fell in Jerusalem. The multi-year average rainfall here is 554 mm. accordingly, we have so far received only 21% of the expected rainfall for the winter, and only 36% of the expected rainfall up to this date.

    Hi friends,

     

    First of all, distribution day will now be Wednesday. I hope that the delivery will be at the same hour. There may be a slight delay for the first couple of weeks.

     

    The boxes lately have been filled with leafy vegetables, as is usual for winter (although winter is not really here yet), so I thought it would be nice if we were better acquainted with them.

     

    At the end of this email is a "green corner" article about rosemary, oregano and carob, from chava, for your interest.

    Hi,

    This week weeding, weeding, weeding, and the garden looks very nice. See photos at http://maggiesgarden.shutterfly.com/ Notice the sunflowers. Sunflower is a summer plant and I used it in the garden to attract insects and for variety. What you see is the result of the combination of of seeds that fell to the ground and the unseasonably spring weather.

    While I really don't mind the weeds, It is always nice to see a row with only what is supposed to be in it. Most of the weeds are around what I have planted.
