The first box of the season!
The boxes were delivered Thursday, fresh and full of flavor. It is astounding how good fresh food tastes. There are so many reasons to eat locally. It's more environmentally sustainable, it supports local farmers and communities, it's healthier.... but also,
it tastes so good. Really, really good.
It's a very special ritual to eat with the seasons. Eating as much of what's fresh until you can eat no more, and then it's time for next tasty veggies. There's always something delicious to look forward to. We just planted winter squashes and pumpkins (some of my favorites, but with so much ahead of them to look forward to) and I couldn't help think how fast my time has been here already, almost 2 months already and the fall will be here sooner than I think.
I think it is time to start planning next steps, let the brainstorms thunder, follow or forge the path I'm on and see where it takes me. That's fun to look forward to too. All the while trying to remember to indulge in every present moment.
