Gobble,gobble (turkey talk for “thank you”)

Well It’s that time of year again…our last CSA distribution.  We have so much to be thankful for and Thanksgiving Day, as our youngest daughter Tasha, likes to point out, should be something we celebrate everyday of our lives.  I agree.

Lately, I find that going to a place of gratitude can be meditative and healing. When I wake up in the middle of the night and am having trouble falling back asleep, I’ll start listing all of the aspects of my life that I am grateful for.  It helps me to focus on these blessings rather than thoughts of destruction and fear.  Take a little time during these next few days and make a mental list of everything and everyone you hold dear.  Remember…love is greater than fear.

Top on our list of what we are thankful for is YOU. You are the folks who support us. While we may feed you with physical food, you feed us with the spiritual.  It is your appreciation and faith in us as your farmers that sustains us. THANK YOU.

REMEMBER…THIS WEEKS DISTRIBUTION IS TOMORROW, TUESDAY, SAME TIME, SAME PLACE.

Please be sure to drop off your boxes tonight if you haven’t already done so.  Your final boxes can be dropped off at the same place and we’ll pick them up next week. And…be sure to tell Eileen, Christine and Murphy “thank you” for letting us use their porch.

IF YOU WANT TO ADD MORE EGGS TO THIS FINAL BOX, LET ME KNOW AND I’LL CHARGE IT TO YOUR MEMBER ACCOUNT
