Greetings, All. As you heard, we had to move the festival from Saturday eve to Sunday eve. I know it didn't rain much in the metro, but here we had sheets of lovely fragrant rain pounding down on us by 6. Not ideal for a bonfire and potluck! Yesterday was temperate and clear. Friends, new and old, enjoyed a quiet evening strolling the gardens, singing by the fire and jumping bravely over to seal intentions for healing and becoming. Thank you, SUN! Welcome, SUMMER!

In the garden, the corn is most definitely knee-high, says co-worker Mariah Klingeman. Granted, she stands just over 5 feet tall herself, but the saying goes that your corn ought to be at least knee high by the 4th of July and that benchmark has been hit already. Bodes well for corn this year. The weeds threaten. A deer and her 2 fawns lurk. And with much care, the gardeners manage to stay ahead of it all. 

The boxes are are going to be different today than the ones on Thursday. Things shift rapidly in the garden world! 

Basil, Rhubarb, Lettuce (but of course!), Kale, Collard greens, Carrots, Radishes, Strawberries
