So, the heat has broken at last (for now). Hopefully the farm has gotten its much-needed rain and all the tomatoes and swiss chard plants will perk up and get growing. Just a reminder that this blog also hopes to be a place for all Community Farm members (and other local food enthusiasts) to see what we're cooking this week and to swap ideas and inspiration. All are welcome!
