These photos show a display of the bounty I purchased this morning from the local Farmers’ Market. This is their last day for the year.
As the Thanksgiving holiday draws near, I am humbly grateful for the talent of others who grow this food for my family and me. Cabbage… red, white, gold and candycane beets… purple, orange and white carrots… cauliflower (both white, and purple! – cross-bred with red cabbage!)… multicolored Swiss chard… butternut squash… bread… pumpkin butter, apple butter, low-sugar raspberry syrup and mango preserves… salad mix… shallots. I am honored to pay them for their labors, and their goods.
I have food… a warm, comfortable home… a job… investments… family… friends. I surely am blessed, and give my word to pass along those blessings to others in need, every chance I get.
May the Goddess bless you all.
