Harvest was cold, wet, and windy this morning, though. But that didn't stop us from getting all your tasty, muddy vegetables out of the ground and to your drop sites on time, without the mud of course. Josh even said on his bike ride to the farm today (yes, he still rides when the weather turns ugly) that the head wind was so bad that when he went to pedal again after stopping at a light he couldn't even move forward against it. What a trooper! I'm hoping that that was the worst of it for him today and he had a nice tail wind on his way home instead.
We've got each others' backs here at Our Table when it comes to inclement weather. Gianna was nice enough to require our presence at an INDOOR meeting today between lunching and de-trellising to talk logistics. We were able to keep her talking just long enough to warm up before we had to get back to work outside. I think she figured out our ulterior motives, though, halfway through, but chose to play along. Thanks Gianna! She also set Karen and I up with a nice warm (and also indoor) booth at an Intel wellness fair this past Tuesday for all the Aloha Intel employees. Everyone was so nice and welcoming, and it was a lot of fun educating people about all the things going on at Our Table, and about CSA's in general. People seemed very receptive and supportive, and hopefully the OT word will keep spreading around the world!
But, as for my words...I think I'm just about out, so I'll keep this post short and leave you with this little beacon of summer:
Talk to you next week!
