We’ll be at the market tomorrow on this gorgeous late-summer day. We’re grateful to be enjoying sunshine and fair weather, especially knowing that a few hundred miles south Hurricane Florence is still dropping literally trillions of gallons of water on the Carolinas. The flooding is sure to be devastating. We only hope that people and animals have safe places to be, on high ground, and shelter from the rain and wind. Our hearts are with the folks whose homes and lives are in peril. Our hearts are with the wildlife, too, whose ecosystems are disrupted and whose habitats are threatened by the storm. We pray for everyone to make it safely through the storm.

It’s hard to continue business as usual when such a disaster is unfolding, but here we are. We’ll know in several days what we can do to help. In the meantime, we will continue to share love by making good food and nourishing our neighbors and friends.

Be well out there, everyone.
