Box no. 12 marks the halfway point of 24 Boxes. So far, so good. I’ve had a lot of fun preparing posts and recipes. Last week, Blogger featured us on their “Blogs of Note” list which garnered a surprising amount of hits and a lot of new readers.
The constant rain that we’ve been experiencing in the Chicagoland area has taken it’s toll on some of the crops at the farm. The average rainfall in Rockford, Illinois during the month of August is 4.21 inches; August 2007 dropped a total of 13.65 inches of rain! But that’s part of subscribing to a Community Supported Agriculture program – you have to take the good with the bad. Overall, Angelic Organics is predicting a good fall and winter share of potatoes, winter squash, fall brassicas, sweet potatoes, popcorn and beets. But for now, we’re still enjoying the fruits of summer – tomatoes, melons, carrots and basil – and looking forward to some dryer weather so the crops (and the farmers) can recover.
