What’s in season: July

It’s a smorgasbord of color this time of year!  Yellow SWEET CORN, GREEN BEANS, and PURPLE/WHITE/GREEN CAULIFLOWER just to name a few!

Melons have begun to make their appearance with CANTALOUPE.  The smell is heavenly!

The wet weather has meant fewer tomatoes than normal, but has done wonders for the BLUEBERRIES.  This year’s bumper crop keeps rolling in with fresh arrivals daily, sometimes several times a day!  In fact, you can often find Tara of the Bluebird Blueberry patch (and her dog Jackie) in the parking lot sorting and packing berries by the pint.

Speaking on summertime abundance, it is ZUCCHINI season.  Break out those recipes and help us work through the mountain of green & yellow :)

And don’t forget the FLOWERS!  Fresh cut stems and bouquets to brighten someone’s day.  (If you love stargazer lilies, this is the place for you!)

This is just a “taste” of the good stuff that is coming in from our farms each day!  To see more like or follow us at www.facebook.com/localrootswoo or www.instagram.com/localrootswoo

August 26th – Improve your mood with Mudras

Mudras are a ritual gesture performed with the hands and fingers that stimulate the flow of energy in through the body.  Learn how the originated, and how you can use them to reduce your stress.

 

Classes are presented by Jenny Mowrer, a certified coach and Reiki master practitioner.  “People have more control over their own health than they realize,” Jenny says.  Her business, “A Touch of Inner Light”, offers life coaching, Reiki healing, and tutoring services.
