Compared to the rest of the country, this summer has remained mild. It reached 76 degrees F today yet the sun feels hotter. A local news station is keeping a tally of how many minutes Seattle has reached and maintained 80 degrees. We’re just over 1,000 minutes. We haven’t had any rain (just a few sprinkles) in a while but I don’t hear many city folks complaining. I’m certainly not. There is no doubt the rain will come and stay too long.
Today I collected my tenth CSA share from Growing Things Farm. I grabbed someone else’s share that didn’t have eggs so I will have to wait for eggs next week. (Thanks Michaele!)
Here’s the contents of the share:
- Leeks, 1 bunch
- Celery, 1 bunch
- Tri-color potatoes, 2 lbs.
- Beans, 1 lb.
- Broccoli, 1 lb.
- 1 large tomato
