I know that I've written often about Diamond Diners, the monthly lunch for seniors that is put together by a dedicated group of folks at St. Aidan's (you know who you are...thank you!) Again this month, we have an abundance of greens from the garden for the lunch - and I am feeling so grateful for our garden and the sun and rain that nurtures it....
Last Sunday, I found myself with a dilemma - a cabbage so beautiful I could hardly bear to harvest it! But I did - because I wanted to bring it to the Free Farm Stand. When I arrived at the Stand, my friend Tree said "It's so gorgeous - how did you harvest it?" Like minds..... So --- to beauty and to noticing what's special about creation and to cabbages....
Flowers and greens and favas and radishes from the St. Mark's and St. Aidan's and Little Red Hen gardens.....It's hard to believe it's February - only in California! (For the East coasters....this is intended not to "rub it in" about the left coast climate - but is meant to raise your spirits and make spring seem "in the air"....)
