Week 4


Hi everyone,

Wow, Summer is here! I know it was the last week of school for many, so congrats to the kids, and good luck to the parents. At the farm, we're continuing with a bit more planting and plenty of weeding and other maintenance. The peas will be ready by next week, so that's exciting. We got the leeks and broccoli planted for a fall harvest, as well as some flowers for the bouquets that Sue makes. And Sue and Claude are making hay whenever there's a good stretch of sunny dry weather. The tree swallows in the bird boxes are fledging and the bluebirds are close behind.

2) Lemon Balm Sun Tea

I make Sun Tea quite a lot in the summer time. Mainly because I'm crazy busy in the summer and Sun Tea is about as easy as it gets. The basic idea is to fill a large glass jar or dispenser with water, add some tea bags and any other herbs or flavors you want, and then set it out in the sun for a few hours. Then refrigerate, and it's a smooth, mellow iced tea without ever boiling water. Lemon Balm is an old fashioned refreshing flavor. Also excellent with the chocolate mint!


3) Spinach Quesadillas from the Moosewood

Here's a quick easy dinner or lunch that uses that spinach! The Moosewood cookbooks are my go-to for practical, delicious and vegetarian dishes.


Have a great weekend!

All the best,
