Day 7 ~ Our Farmers and Food Makers
On chilly days like today I feel especially grateful to our local farmers and food makers. "We're here when it's 107 degrees and when it's 27 degrees" is what one of the farmers at Johnson's Backyard Garden said to me this morning. That pretty much sums it up. I deeply appreciate the hard work and dedication to a sustainable food system that brings local growers to the market each week, no matter the climate or circumstance. The abundance of smiles at the market this morning, even while shivering has me feeling warm with gratitude.
