I’m silly excited about this, but we joined a crop share! At our beloved Nall’s! Which is bare this time of year but still beautiful to me.
I have been thinking about joining this crop share for the longest time, but wondered how I would meal plan around it. I’m still not sure how I’ll meal plan around it but we’ll figure it out.
We picked up lettuce, apples, brussels, pears, oranges, eggs, and milk in our first box. And I knew this before we picked up our box, but it was confirmed that it really does matter where your food comes from. Those apples are amazing!
We pick up every week from here on out. Penny pig was sleeping when we were there this past Saturday morning, but Madeline and I are looking forward to warmer weather when we can say hello to her. And the chickens and the geese.
And while I have you and while we are taking about quality ingredients, I really loved these words and thoughts about “unity” in the wake of Wednesday’s events. I titled this post after a favorite line. I also liked this:
“There are no ‘two sides of the aisle’
in the kitchen.
There is a table.
There are chairs.
There are human beings bound together
by a need for nourishment,
and in order for that to happen,
we have to bring our ingredients together
and work to create a feast
so that everyone
can be fed.”

What ingredients do you bring? And are you honest, intentional, and courageous? Are you brave? And are you a member of a local crop share? A lot to consider.
