Hello dear email subscribers!

Melissa asked me (Andy) to send the email this week. I briefly considered taking the emails she's sent so far this year and feeding them into an artificial intelligence program, GPT-3 probably, to see if it could replicate her whimsical writing style.

But, as you're probably already aware, Melissa's writing style has something that a computer could never replicate. That spark of humanness, the meandering pace, that je ne sais quois that makes you feel, deep down in your gut, that there's a human on the other end of the line.

I get that same feeling when I sneak into the high tunnel and bite into one of our cherry tomatoes: There was a human on the other end of this food. And for every step of its development too. They say the best fertilizer is the footsteps of the farmer. It's what tells you, deep down, that there were human hands and feet and eyes on this food.

Here's what we have this week:

The Harvest: head lettuce, lettuce mix, arugula, cherry tomatoes, slicing tomatoes, zucchini, yellow squash, kale, collards, Swiss chard, beets, carrots, hakurei turnips, and radishes, fennel greens, BLUEBERRIES!
Where you can find us: Port Angeles Farmers Market, Transit Center, Saturday 10-2

See you at the market!
