Welcome to this week’s Farmers Market Fare Posts! We gathering more posts in this second edition, and I hope that continues to grow as the Eat Local season really gets started for most of the country. Perhaps not so much for my neck of the woods where we had snow and cold. Then spring arrived the following afternoon. Just to mock me, or to cheer me up. Or both.
Given that this coming week is Earth Day, and April is poetry month, here are a few words from Kahlil Gibran’s poem, “Earth:”
“How beautiful you are, Earth, and how sublime!
How perfect is your obedience to the light, and
how noble is your submission to the sun!
How soothing is the song of your dawn, and how
harsh are the praises of your eventide!
How perfect you are, Earth, and how majestic!”
Here are your blog posts for the week (after the jump).
