Editor's Note from Julie Cerrato: Summer is full of fire and heat and can be irritating to the body. Since it is predominantly pitta season, we must take certain precautions to keep pitta dosha in balance. Pitta individuals will benefit from eating foods with sweet, bitter and astringent rasas (tastes); wearing clothes with cool blue and green colors and exerting minimal to moderate energy towards tasks. Practicing gentle, restorative yoga and including a short daily meditation will also help keep pitta in balance. This lovely video from the Chopra Center outlines steps to take for summer pitta season and suggests some essential oils that will keep pitta cool and under control. Enjoy. Namaste
Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: The uplifting feel of a farmer's market is contagious. The energy of the greens plus the efforts of the dedicated farmers shines through. In this urban garden project, the source of that dedication can be traced right to the back yard. Urban gardens are sprouting up every where from empty lots to skinny boulevards to discarded five-gallon buckets. This is real creativity at work, turning unused potential into a market fare.

Here in the Sharing Gardens we practice a style of gardening known as "deep mulching". Just as it is rare to find bare soil in nature, in our gardens you won't find much exposed soil either...
Editor’s notes: This is a good time of year to mulch your gardens. It will build your soil, and provide nutrients for living soil organisms that keep your plants healthy. If you have a winter garden, mulch will help keep your plants warm.
