What I think about while packaging your vegetables a Dr.Suess Poem by Davida Task

These tomatoes look plastic today.

I can not believe how vibrant the root of this kale is. His mother must be proud.

The earth seeded the root which birthed this plant and the farmers nursed the baby into my hand, this parsley is grand!

I hate to compost these vegetables. All extra, big and beautiful for the cows to eat! If only I could give this zucchini to barren bellies.

This beet is lonely and this one is glad. This beet is humble and that one is a grandad.

No Till farming makes the best produce that is safest for the land.

Thank you to this soil and rock, to the Lenni-Lenape, Mahican and Iriquois tribes who used to reside on the earth the farmers are tethered today after day.

Thank you to you members! Who enjoy this beautiful food and share it with your families.
