Heat, rain and earwigs

Thanks for reading, and for your support! We’ve been busy in the last week. With the heat and rain, the weeds have come out full force, along with bugs like earwigs. We saw a lot of them today. We tried to make sure none of them stuck around as we rinsed and packed your food, but I’m sure we missed a few. Keep your eyes open for such visitors. You might want to check your box carefully before bringing it inside.

The rains also splattered the dirt, so the lettuce growing outside got dirtier than usual. You’ll want to give them a second or third rinse (we already gave them one) before eating. The green chard was also beaten hard by the rains and appears a little rough.

Please let us know if you come across any good new recipes you’d like us to share. Here’s one sent to us last week for Peppery Couscous and Arugula Salad, including green onions and cucumbers. And here’s a nice simple carrot slaw for you to try with this week’s fresh carrots.
