August 2020, Week 1
Summer condenses days of sweetness into the treasured fruit that humans (and animals) bring in from the fields. Each bite is the culmination of immense and tiny cooperative experiences: between the plant and the sun, between the earth and the water, between the busy insects that carefully visited each flower. All of those moments in which two things worked together, in which a vast network of unrelated things converged, result in the fruit that hangs heavy from its stem.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What will you find at the market? What made it possible? What brought it to the cooler? Each piece of produce has an entire story, if we listen.
