Warbling

Each morning I wake up to a very complicated tune of rapid notes – a warbling vireo has taken up residence. I’ve never seen the little bird, but it sure has a song that I am unable to sing. I hope the winged folk are paying attention and can decipher its meaning.

I’m a warbler of sorts. Yes, I do like music and hum or sing when life is weary or most exciting. But more than that, I’ve been in the business of encouraging good eats for a very long time – about 40 years and growing! What one chooses to munch on to satisfy hunger is now deemed the single most significant factor for disability and premature death – imagine! The tune is basically the same: focus on unprocessed foods, (Jubilee) fruits and vegetables, plant-based fats & proteins, legumes, whole grains and nuts.

I could add many more complicated stanzas, like the early morning melodies that greet me, but I’ll leave that for another time and place.

So….twiddle dee dee doo – farm shares will receive a salad mix from one-cut lettuces, a choice of asparagus or spinach for minis, choice of one from: green onions, rhubarb or romaine, and a choice of either kale or kohlrabi. Shares should get one of everything. We have a sage plant for everyone.
