2014 Week 6

The hot weather can be draining for those of us who move around in it.  But with enough water the heat-loving plants like tomatoes and cucumbers are thriving.  It’s coming into the most bountiful time in the garden. Like clockwork, the tomatoes start changing color en force, the summer flowers are bursting  open and the greens just keep on kickin’ out the leaves.

This week you’ll find the box reflects this lovely season of abundance. While the plants love the heat, it also makes them very thirsty so let’s hope it rains soon to save us farmers time, money, and of course water!!

 

Here’s what’s in the box this week:
