Amazing May 6: Food Plants

I went to the El Cerrito Plaza farmer’s market today. I can report that here in the San Francisco Bay Area, the season of abundant variety of fruits and vegetables is here. There were purple and white onions, orange and red beets–all looking shiny-fresh with green leaves attached.  The sugar snap peas and fava beans were big, almost bursting with peas and beans. Nectarines, peaches, and zucchini have arrived.

How amazing that these plants that were little seeds a few months ago are available for us to eat now.

Thank you, farmers. Thank you, plants. Thank you, earth, water, and sun.
