Thinking Inside the Box (or basket) - It's Thyme . . . and other herbs, etc.

It is indeed time to start our box/basket  delivery/pick up program.  We have beans, broccoli, chard, garlic, herbs, peppers, salad greens, tomatoes (cherry and gardener's delight) and zucchini.  Cucumbers,  potatoes, more peppers (hot and mild) and hundreds of tomatoes are preparing themselves to be ready in a week or so.  
And we should give mention to the beets, carrots, spinach and squashes giving their best efforts to grow in all of this rainlackingness.  We've put in four soaker systems and are so very thankful when we can give some of them a break once in a while like the other day.  Sure we wanted rain, but I don't quite remember asking for high winds and possible tornadoes.  Just a simple rain would do maybe once or twice a week, if anyone is listening.     

The lettuce has really taken off.
 It's so lovely, green and delicious.  It's been selling well
at the Farmers' Market and we just can't stop eating it.

The heirloom romaine has astonishing colour ,
looks and tastes wonderful in your salad.
Kale is loaded with goodness.

Lettuce varieties-crunchy, leafy, curly, spicy.
This rainbow chard loves to grow,
white, yellow, pink and ruby red-a wonderful source
of everything your body needs.

I'll be contacting you any day now if you've let me know you're interested in a weekly delivery.  If you're not on our list and would like to be, please email me or call.  You can also drop by (phone first) to see what's growing.  Wednesday will be delivery day AND/OR you can pick up your order at the Kemptville Kinsmen Farmers' Market Sundays from 2:00 to 4:00 (see link).
We are so very excited about all of this growing and eating of such wonderful goodness.
