My heart is aching for those who have lost so much and continue to struggle with flooding from Irene. It's difficult to understand how communities in Upstate New York, Vermont and western Massachusetts, etc., can be so affected by a hurricane. But roads, bridges, houses and lives were washed away.
We get wonderful veggies and fruit all summer from our CSA (Community Shared Agriculture), the Denison Farm in Schaghticoke, NY. The Denison family farm is now largely under water as are many others in the east and northeast. I'm happy we support this community resource—farmers are true heroes! Here's a video from Justine at the Denison Farm.
My prayers go out to everyone who is struggling now, including our dear friend Peggy in the flooded village of Waterford, NY. Sending everyone blessings, good thoughts and sunshine.
