Christmas The Whole Year Round

Posted 12/16/2019 7:13pm by David Zemelsky.

This is a time of year when a lot of people find hope.  When the fate of the planet, the endless division in politics, the enormous  chasm between the haves and have nots, seem absolutely insurmountable-then this time of year looks like the moment when something could change.  Non profits count on the Holiday season to raise the bulk of their contributions.  We’re all geared up now for holiday spirit. I’m not sure exactly what that is, but there’s no doubt it’s in the air.

My wish is that we carry that feeling throughout the year. Why couldn’t Christmas spirit, just become daily spirit?  I grew up listening  to The Weavers,an important folk group from the 50’s/60’s. On one of their records, the last song was “We Wish You A Merry Christmas “. They did a joyous , festive standard version until the last line when they sang “Why can’t we have Christmas the whole year around?”  Indeed, why not, I wondered. Not just then but 60 years later the question still looms in my head-why can’t we approach everyone with the same feeling of hope, trust and love all the time?

This early morning thought is not polished, certainly-but heartfelt. And with that in mind, please remember that myself, Jen and Joel, we appreciate all of you for allowing us to help provide you real food each week. It’s a true privilege to be able to do that for you. I hope that peace follows you into and beyond the new year which is just over the horizon. Namaste.

There’s going to be two more times to get food before the Christmas. This Thursday,as usual and Monday,the 23rd.  Thursday’s order is do to us Tuesday by noon.  Monday’s order needs to be done by Thursday at noon. We’ll need the extra lead time because of the colder weather.  After that, the store will be closed till after the New Year. Break Time.  The next time you’ll hear from us, the new tomato plants will already be planted (or close to it).

This week we’ll have 

Salad, spinach,arugula and braising greens- $6/bag

Joel and Jen’s Spicy Dill Pickles and Hot Pickled Peppers -$8/jar

Apple/ Hot Pepper Jam -$7 large and $4/small

Both items are awesome stocking stuffers

Also great stocking stuffer: Sun dried Tomatoes $5

Big Kale- $4/bunch

Radishes- crisp, a tad spicy and reassuring$4/bunch

Haukeuri Turnips- roast them if you want or just treat them like radishes and eat raw$4/bunch

That’s it . Enjoy.
