Holy heat wave, did we all survive? How about your gardens? While weather is still expected to be around 100 degrees this week, it’s a relief to drop below 107. Last week I harvested my first zucchini! It was tender and a beautiful golden yellow color. The green beans are shooting off little pods, the blackberries are small and starting to turn color, and my chickens have been treated like queens with misters and a fan.
Walking through the store there are hundreds of choices on how to cool off. From crisp fruit to fresh pressed juices and smoothies, we’ve got you covered. Did you see that EcoTeas has new unsweetened Yerba Mate in our cooler near the registers? The Mate Flower with hibiscus is my personal favorite. If a cold beverage just doesn’t quite cut it, head down aisle 7 to the land of icy delicacies. This is the danger zone, but sometimes you have to go there. Three Twins Ice Cream makes a Cookies & Cream that is out of this world, and happens to be on sale until July 21st.
Stay cool Ashland,
