U Pick Peas

Today was my first pick-up from my CSA. It officially started last week, but I was in transit from Minneapolis.

Today's distribution included a "U Pick Peas" share. I got to walk through the farm, walk along the rows of planted vegetables, with all all their bugs, mud, flowers, and vines.

The clouds were heavy and low. The wind (not a breeze) was blowing. The ground was muddy and my feet were still hurting.

Still, I was happy.

I honestly believe that the Earth could heal herself of all her ills if only we'd go away. But, since we're here, I think we should use every chance we've got to revel in the infinite beauty that is snap peas hanging on the vine, waiting to be plucked.
