Week 42 – With a Little Help From Our Friends

This week, we did not make a trip to the farm. We were busy doing this:

kiss newborn ekwetzel

And this:

kiss newborn family

And some of this:

sleep with baby

Our friends, Amy and Jesse, went in our stead, picked up the produce and took a picture for us. (Thanks guys!).

I don’t really see much charm in being independent and self-sufficient. Especially not this week, with a new baby in tow. We love community. We love helping and being helped. We love being in connection with others, and opening up our lives to them so that we have the opportunity to form a deep and meaningful relationship with them.

We live a Community Supported Life. We eat from a Community Supported Farm. Community isn’t just about agriculture or organic produce…it’s about heart and life and connection.

Food is just one expression of that bond, and one way in which you can allow yourself to meet the needs of others, and to open yourself up so that others can meet your needs as well.

    I love the spirit of community. 🙂 Enjoy that babe.

    And the greens on the upper left look like collard. Delicious if steamed lightly then sautéed with a little bacon. We eat those with white rice about once a week. They’re quite good food you. 🙂

    What an interesting mix of veggies! That’ll make for some awesome eats! The baby looks almost as happy as her parents!
