Howdy from the farm,

I am reminded everyday why my favorite color is green.


The phrase life give birth to life, has been going through my mind. As I meditate on that thought. Some contrasts come up. Like how fragile life can be at times, and yet how determined life can be at other times.

Other times I wonder, how long we as a society will be satisfied with being sick? Especially with cancer. We treat it like it is something you catch like a cold or the flu. But even then we wash our hands and cover our mouths to prevent the spread of germs.

Nothing ever to prevent cancer. Like limiting toxins in our environment, eating clean food, knowing your farmer.

When we planted oats and peas this spring we spilled some as we filled the planter, these places where the seed is too thick are by far the tallest. In the picture there are further away it was hard to capture what i wanted in a picture. Now the crop is far too thick to produce a crop of seed but there was something inside all those seeds that caused them to get a great start. In some form Life.

Getting life from life herein lies the mystery many seek the answer to.

They say an ounce of prevention is a pound of cure. Maybe there should be an asterisk by that statement to exclude cancer treatment.

We will have our regular deliveries this month except in Chicago. There is only one delivery per month now at the Chicago Primal gym. This delivery is open to everyone.

CSA can be picked up for the monthly delivery just order through the website meadowhavenfarm.com
