notes on the share

The heat is getting to some of the cool weather loving crops-- like the lettuce.  You'll notice that the heads are a little smaller than usual as we've been removing the damaged outer leaves.  Zucchini is coming in like crazy (as it always seems to do...) so you may want to try baking some zucchini bread if you're getting tired of it in its usual form!
