Grace and patience
It seems Ranjit and Maya will have the youth group out at Jubilee Farm in Carnation this weekend. If the name Carnation is familiar, the town of Tolt was renamed a long time ago after the Carnation milk company's headquarters farm just north of town, now owned by Nestle and no longer a working dairy farm.
There's a comment on the page right now that resonates a bit:
... Farming teaches us grace; we're not always in control. Grocery stores set up strange expectations, strawberries in December from some faraway land. ...Way back when I was always so impatient for artichoke season (and especially the artichokes!) to arrive. Actually, I still am -- do they even grow them somewhere other than California?
