Week 29 - Sowing the Seeds of Love

In addition to sowing several seeds in my own garden of late, it's been a fun week of getting an entire elementary school ready to plant a fall garden.  After nearly a year of planning and building, a garden has been built at our local public school and - thanks to a group of more than 30 parents volunteers - more than 600 children will be enjoying a fall planting class over the next two weeks.  I know that not everyone will fall in love with gardening like I have, but I'm hopeful that at least a few will be excited to try what they have grown.  Like me, they'll have to learn to be patient, but hopefully we'll all enjoy the bounty together in late winter!

In the box this week
(top) lettuce, kale, cilantro
(bottom) squash, tomatoes, apples, avocados, garlic, watermelon, yellow grape tomatoes, green grapes

Meal plan for the week
Sunday: Grilled sausages with Lettuce Avocado Cilantro salad with lime dressing (lots of limes ready to be eaten on the tree)
Monday: Kale, Squash and pinto bean enchiladas
Tuesday: Fresh Tomato lasagna
Wednesday: spiced chicken and Grape skewers with quinoa pilaf
Thursday: vodka Watermelon coolers for my book club (aka mom's night out!)

Hoping to get a chance to try a homemade watermelon cocktail after last week's cancelled event.  The watermelons that have been arriving in the box are truly the best that I've ever tasted.
This week's title is inspired by the song of the same name by Tears for Fears.
