Only together can we invoke inclusion and equal opportunity.
Only together can we end racial discrimination.
To all of the many peaceful protesters over these past weeks and beyond, we salute the hard and productive conversations needed to bring about change. This act of speaking out against hate, ignorance and fear, against systems of power that crush lives, is an important part of the health of our democracy. The sadness and frustration that fill our hearts needs to be heard by law makers, business leaders and all in the communities. Only together can we end racially discriminatory behavior in our everyday life, only together can we invoke inclusion and equal opportunities for all minority groups.
Today, we celebrated our first harvest of lettuce,144 cases in 2 hours—an incredible job—and we take a bow to Fidencio and Andrew in their gorgeous prep and cultivation of this succession. As the cool and rainy days have kept the lettuces very robust, somehow we managed to keep the elk at bay without having to put up a fence. Only one lone elk has come around in the newly planted cucumbers—perhaps they struck a deal with the slugs this year, as these little buggers have been nonstop. We have had to pull many hundreds per-night off of the young broccoli leaves and cabbages, but the worst of it is that trying to wash slug goo off your hands can take quite an effort. Our efforts to ramp up harvest and still remain safe with COVID-19 have been very smooth, as our early efforts have created a very clear mask-loving, social-distancing daily existence. The cooler weather has made it easier to work with the masks, and we’re keeping fingers crossed this is a cooler summer theme.
We know these weeks have been very overwhelming on so many fronts, and we wish for all both mental and physical health, and we hope you can find a little comfort in eating fresh, delicious fruits and veggies.
