Making A Difference
It would not be June if our pump didn’t break one week into irrigation. Alas, we spent much of this last week trying to get water on newly transplanted lettuce. Luckily, the nights have been cool and the moisture strong enough to sustain. The last thing we need at this point is a Saharan dust plume. It’s unbelievable how we have experienced so much uncertainty in our existence on this planet in the year 2020.
Lately I have been trying to listen for the coyotes in the late evening just to a feel a sense that Mother Nature, and all the wildlings within, are somehow engaging in love, protection and a clear call in which nothing gets muted. Somehow the frogs seem to be winning out. The spotted Oregon frogs are loud but so are the Pacific Tree frogs. Family Ranidae wins this week, which is ok in our world — much better than helicopters, jet skiers and other noisy machines whizzing about. Veggies grow well to the surround-sound of nature healing us.
This week our harvest list began with 140 cases of beautiful red radishes heading off to your boxes and we are so grateful for all of our member support. Thank you for keeping local, organic food a priority during a time when so many worthy causes need engagement.
The future of our health, environmental health and global health are at stake on multiple levels. The many farmers and food producers cultivated in our farm-to-table program have dedicated their lives to the future of this planet. We find motivation each day as we look at the barn wall we painted 2 decades ago that reads, “making a difference one step, one bunch, one box at a time.” Stay safe and enjoy the coming weeks of summer’s bounty.
