Pea picking and watering of the next pea crop to try and save it. It's been overcast all day but as of right now no rain!

Thanks to everyone for their rain well wishes, it's great to hear everyone wishing for the same thing.

Reminder for those paying monthly that it is the first of the month. Please send along your payment for July if you haven't already done so. Many thanks! 

What to do with your bunch of oregano this week? Here is one option, make pesto. You can freeze the pesto if you don't want to use it all at once. http://ahealthylifeforme.com/oregano-pesto/

Also, you can dry it and have it on hand for tomato season for making sauces. OR freeze it for easy access when you need some oregano flavour. This morning I made oregano tea.

A message from our friend Aube. 

Dear friends, family, and food transparency allies,

For 9 years, I've been pouring my heart and soul into a feature documentary film about the labelling of genetically engineered foods. I've been researching, reading, interviewing, travelling, filming, and editing, and the film is finally nearing completion. Yesterday, I launched an Indiegogo campaign to raise the funds needed to complete the film: https://igg.me/at/modified

Please take a peek at my campaign page and trailer in which I explain the special reason why this film is so dear to my heart. If you are able, please consider making a contribution (no amount is too small!) and most importantly, sharing the project with your friends and family to spread the word. For any contribution of $25 and up, you will receive a digital link to view the full film once it's done, even before it's publicly shown. Be the first to see it!

With heartfelt thanks for your generous support.
