Let’s admit it.

2020 is a crazy, stressful year for many of us, and it is only halfway done! How are you handling this year’s shifting landscape and the variety of challenges that go with it?

I’ve thought about how so many new CSA members joined this year, and that is wonderful. For the first time, some people, spurred by the pandemic, are seeking healthy, organic food grown close to home from a trustworthy source. Others, myself included, have also planted gardens.

In a sense, the prickly, painful nature of Covid-19 has paradoxically produced blossoms.

What blossoms you might say? Well, it certainly seems many positive things have bloomed in the last few months. Look closely.
