It’s the first day of August and July flew by! The rain and heat that we experienced caused a growing boom—in our plants and

the weeds but while I was camping in Door County with the kids  Chris took hold and slowed the weeds who’s the boss. When came home he was so proud to show me the newly tilled, weeded and cleaned fields. They look great. Also, while I was away we got a call from our mentor farmer, Jill Beyer,

from Harrison Market Garden, offering us cucumber and squash plants they no longer needed.  A blessing! We promptly planted those as the are about 3 weeks out from producing. Then came the cold snap and everything seemed to stop growing and ripening, except the broccoli. 60 degrees in July? Chris and I were working out in the field and jokingly commented on the beautiful “fall” weather we were having. But no worries, "For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven” (Ecc 3:1) -including vegetables. They will eventually ripen (we hope!). We’ve had an amazing and crazy growing season so far and have been deeply blessed.  Enjoy your box this week!

 In the box this week:

Half Dozen Sweet Corn

The first token red tomato

Zucchini

Yellow (or "Rellow" - as my 3yr old calls it) Dumpling Squash
