Happy Canada Day everyone! There are many things I love about our nation: the vast and rugged lands, beautiful greenery everywhere, diversity of peoples, freedom, and a spirit of generosity. We can surely count ourselves among the most blessed in the world!
This week a few new crops are here. Sugar snap and snow peas (can’t believe we are harvesting the first of them in July!), zucchini, swiss chard (green, red and rainbow…it will be a surprise which one you get), strawberries and oregano. I know everyone is probably feeling super jealous of the whole shares getting strawberries. The patch is not at full production yet, but I hope to share the harvest with the other shares when supply allows. Eat ’em up quick!
