Greetings! We're already in August! Today's photo features even more creative ideas in making fresh fruits and produce appetizing during our hot, humid days. Any type of cold fruit and vegetable salads can cool down parched throats, and provide electrolytes to our bodies, especially for children playing outside, or anyone who finds themselves outdoors during Florida's summers. I just couldn't pass up sharing this beautiful photo - it sparks the imagination for creative ideas in making produce more appealing. Try making popsicles in orange rind halves for something a little different.
Many roads in our end of town have remained flooded from heavy downpours since Tropical Storm Debby. The clay-rich fields at Beasley Farm are still extremely soggy. This means a few of our summer crops are not maturing in the way we had hoped. Still, we keep our fingers crossed that our pesticide-free harvest will come to fruition soon. In the meantime, welcome to this week's newsletter! We hope your summer has been enjoyable, healthy and safe.
Gran'ma Angie thanks you for the bags! She hopes you will keep on bringing 'em. Thanks for "recycling" your plastic bags with us! It helps us keep prices down.
