Notes from the field:

Russell Libby, the Director of Maine Organic Farmers and Gardiners Association wrote an editorial of sorts in a fall newsletter about food, comunity, the present and living in the present with our vision for the future.  His words suggested to me, "Why wait?"

If we all hold certain ideals, there are ways everyday to live in the/a world we desire, especially if we acknowledge our ability to create "a moment" to be as we hope.  For me, this means continuing to share and to relate to people through healthy food; inspiration is a vital part of this journey.

What's in the box?
  • Leaf lettuce
  • Swiss chard
  • Bunch carrots
  • Sugar Snap Peas
  • Yellow and Red Onions
  • 1 pint Cherry Tomatoes
  • 1 quart of slicing Tomatoes
  • 1 sweet pepper
  • 1 green pepper

In this week's bag you will find a tasty harvest.  As we transition into the fall terperatures you may find the leaves and fruits to have slightly sweeter flavors.  The cooler weather causes leaves to grow slower making their sugars and leaf structure more dense.  The peppers, potatoes, and winter squash, yet to come, have been working on growing and yielding for 6 to 7 months - concentrating nutrients and energy for a flavorful slow food.

We hope your creativity is inspired.

Many thanks.
