Box 8: Mungo Season

In the summertime when the weather is hot
You can stretch right up and touch the sky
When the weather’s fine
You got berries, you got berries on your mind
Have a drink, have a drive
Go out and see what you can find

If the veggie’s ripe take it in for a meal
If it’s not ripe yet just let it stay in the field
Speed along the rows
Pull a weed or maybe three twenty-five
When the sun goes down
You can make it, make it good and really fine

We’re not bad people
We’re not dirty, we’re not mean
We love everybody but we do as we please
When the weather’s fine
We go hikin’ or go swimmin’ in the stream
We’re always happy
Life’s for livin’ yeah, that’s our philosophy

Sing along with us
Dee dee dee-dee dee
Dah dah dah-dah dah
Yeah we’re hap-happy
Dah dah-dah
Dee-dah-do dee-dah-do dah-do-dah
Dah-dah-dah do-dah-dah

Alright ah

Nora and the boys

Chh chh-chh, uh, chh chh-chh, uh
Chh chh-chh, uh, chh chh-chh, uh
Chh chh-chh, uh, chh chh-chh, uh
Chh chh-chh, uh, chh chh-chh, uh
Chh chh-chh, uh, chh chh-chh, uh
Chh chh-chh, uh, chh chh-chh

Inside Box 8:

  • Shallots – use like onions … but with milder, more complex flavor.
  • Carrots – a medley of three colors of carrots
  • Zucchini
  • Broccoli – the spring planting is growing kind of oddly due to the recent heat waves, but it’s still yummy!
  • Micro-Greens – four of you are randomly getting flavorbomb basil microgreens – don’t refrigerate them or they’ll turn black and yucky. The rest of y’all have a colorful mix of amaranth, kale, kohlrabi, and mustard greens.
  • Green Beans (and a dash of Purple) – they’re slowing down finally!

  1. Well now we’re listening to the entire Mungo Jerry collection after that awesome recreation while happily anticipating veggies and all the jam. Also, Aster wants to pick berries like Otis and is unimpressed with my offering of backyard garden cherry tomatoes.
