A toast to good food and good health
Eat your colors! Blueberries are in season!
The other day, I received a call for a wrong number. The woman on the other end of the line was disappointed to not find Marjorie on the other end of the line and then asked if anyone in our household had diabetes. I admit that I giggled a little bit (well, it is quite a non-sequitur), and replied that we were an organic vegetable farm as if that were enough answer in itself. But afterward, I thought that maybe it is.
“I don’t do this for my health” is usually an apt statement when applied to one’s work. But in our case, perhaps it is done for our health. At least partly. I often get asked about the particular nutritional content of one vegetable or another and I have to admit ignorance. It’s a luxury, perhaps, to never really need to worry about those little particulars, which we don’t because we seem to be doing okay just eating all the stuff that comes from the farm. In the absence of work benefits like health care or paid sick leave or vacation time, good fresh organic food from the farm becomes an important benefit.
So let’s raise our blueberry kale smoothie and toast to good food and good health. Cheers!
