notes on the share

Due to weather fluctuations earlier in the season and an uneven harvest, the contents of the share is going to change considerably from day to day for the next few weeks.

News from the Farm

We experienced severe thunder storms last night with hail!  Luckily most of our crops seem to have survived-- but some of our new bean plants were severly whipped by the wind. 

More beautiful weather is forecasted for the next week or so.  We got enough rain during the storms to give us a little break from irrigating, which is a blessing during the hot summer months!
