Fresh Sustainable Produce - Grown Locally November 24, 2015
This Thanksgiving week is a good time to reflect on all for which we are grateful. Though this year has had its challenges we are grateful for the good harvests, sunshine, loyal workers, supportive shareholders, safety in the fields, mostly good health, supportive family, late frost, fewer insects, new ideas, and many more tangible and intangible things. That is the way it is with gratitude, once you start counting your blessings, more and more come to your attention. You begin to focus your attention on all that is going right in your life, and it puts the blips into perspective. Research says that the human mind will focus on the 1 negative instead of the 9 positive things that happen, and so develop a falsely negative outlook. It is something we need to work on! Life is much more enjoyable from a positive point of view, and those that affirm and enjoy life are much better companions.

Stir them vigorously until they are tender but still bright green. Serve.
Greens in Broth Bring vegetable or chicken broth to a simmer and add minced garlic. Simmer for a few minutes then add the greens. Simmer till tender but still bright green.
