July 16 Delivery

Here we are ... going into our 4th week of deliveries and we're looking at zucchini blossoms! We will have a zucchini picking this week. (If we wait til next week, we probably wouldn't be able to carry them to the car! LOL)
Peas and green beans are blooming - so those pickings may need to be divided. So, if you don't get peas, you should get green beans. All depending on the weather.
So, for our July 16 delivery we will have green onions, lettuce, broccoli, zucchini, kale and herbs. (Kale freezes really well. After blanching it, pat dry, put in a zip lock bag, press flat and label with "Kale" and the date and you've just saved yourself some food dollars for this winter. Sara's mom included kale in spaghetti sauce recipe. Sara said it was really good.)
Side note: We made a new cabbage moth net. The old one had a hole in it ... the four that were chased and caught ... got away! So, that was it! We dropped everything that we were doing and made a net twice as big as the old one! July 10 cabbage moth tally (one day) - Doug - "0" (he was at work); Char - "2;" Sara - "8."
Make it a great day!
