Midsummer Dreaming

18 Jul

This is the point in the season when it is just beginning to feel like summer is here.  The days have  been warm and mostly dry and the summer crops are starting to fruit.  In our garden, along with carrots and beets, zucchini, beans, and peas are all on the way.  From the Western Slope, we will start to stock the share up with cucumbers, corn, melons, beans, tomatoes, eggplant, and potatoes.

    Thanks, Caitlin! We’re really enjoying the blog, and our yummy veggies. It’s so much fun to open the box each week and see what we have, and then to figure out how we’re going to use it all.
