Dear Farm Journal,
One of the fringe benefits of farming is access to the freshest ingredients. When lunchtime comes, Rufus and I gather up armloads of produce and reach for our kitchen knives. Slicing into tomatoes, peppers, and melons floods the senses with flavor and makes my mouth water. I never want to take this experience for granted. In fact, I want to open doors so that as many people as possible have daily access to fresh food. I know the energy I need to live my life well is inside of these plants, and our current food system does not support equal food access. I hope to play a part in seeing that change in my lifetime.
