It's always good to remember just what it takes to put food on our tables, and to offer a silent, or very loud, thanks to the people who work day to day to grow it up out of the ground, full of nutrients and flavor, for the good of our bodies, minds and spirits. And to the people who work tirelessly to protect as much of our wild lands, property and persons from the fury of nature's flames.
We're only a week away from our last day for the season and while I'm still hoping for more sunshine to soak my bones, seeing it rain on the burning East would be sweet relief for the people, animals, trees and land there, and I would be grateful for that even more so.
We are still eating peaches and melons. Fresh apples and pears have just started coming in. Still the sweetness of summer lingers. We'll be celebrating the season next Tuesday with refreshments from 4:00 - 7:00 pm. Stop by and join us!
