Farmers Market Fare 11

Red Cabbage, ready for harvestHappy Holiday Weekend coming up! This week, I want to share with you some of the words from our weekly CSA letter (we do both a CSA and I shop the market). This letter is from our family farm supplier and keeps us up-to-date with all that is happening at the farm. The paragraph sums up so much about why farmers pursue a difficult livlihood, often working a second job just so they can continue farming.

“I have been thinking a lot this week about growing things and how lucky we are to live in a place where it is possible to see nature in all its forms. As pissed off as I get about the deer eating produce, it still takes my breath away to see a doe and her baby standing by the side of the road. I love to watch the dragon flies dive boming over the plants in the field and just have to search for the nest of a quail who is frantically trying to call me in the opposite direction. It never ceases to amaze me that a seed no bigger than a pinhead can create a plant that is over 12 feet tall and will produce a two-pound tomato. What a wondrous world we live in.
