2018 Week 51, Winter CSA 2 of 13
If the winter is a slow diving into depth, the solstice is when we touch bottom. What you throw upward must have, for that instant before the rising thing becomes the falling, a moment of rest. It stops. And while long ago we might have felt something start to rise in us, and called our celebration the solstice. Maybe we also felt something stop.
We live in the shallows here, as far as winter goes, but we still have our dive. And, as for that, perhaps the shorter the winter, the more we need it. Where are the old rites which properly engage this passage? It seems we farmers should have at least a week of customs to take us around this horn. But this is a farm, and we grow things. So I suppose it’s something we could just as well grow ourselves.
Althea Bread: If you are into more bread, let Andy know. He will be dropping off more loaves this Wednesday, but only if you order!
Summer CSA: The 10% discount on the Summer CSA ends in two weeks. If that’s of interest to you, take note.
See you on the farm,
