Whether reading the RACIST onslaught captured in our top headlines terrifies you or you are out there resisting on the front-line, or whether you and your loved ones are directly at-risk of state violence, I’m hoping that there is at least one part of your day where you just focus on what sustains you!!
This week things are in abundance, and I do not have any other outlets and I’d rather they not go to waste. So this week it’s seven items, a free item, and optional giant zucchinni’s which will be available first come first serve at your pick up location. Perfect for making zucchini bread or zucchini noodles (zoodles!)
I hope you enjoy! And keep the pictures coming!
