Large amount of asparagus

Martin’s Farmstand

Tub full of green asparagus
Asparagus season will soon end. If you are planning to put some up or just enjoy it a few more times now is the time. The strawberry crop looks like it will be bountiful this year as there are lots of blossoms and the fruit is setting well on nice healthy plants. They are not near ready yet. Most years the season starts between June 15 – June 21. My judgement at this point is that this year will start towards the end of that period.

The tender touch.

In this modern age sometimes we get fascinated with all the wonders of higher math and science. Math is good  but it is possible to get weird and faulty results when we use mathematics to try to figure out which school teachers are the best.  Are test scores the only thing that counts when we assess the teacher or do we also value the tender touch?  Is the highest good in business judged only by what makes the most profit for the individual? Do we care, if as a byproduct,  we have made a mean money gathering machine? What about our neighbors and community? The environment? We need to be careful as the nature of a lot of the Western business models is to over value money. Farms are developed if that pays better than farming, trashy ingredients and chemicals end up in food… I could go on. Yes money is an important and useful tool but what about that tender touch and in general the human side of life? Daniel
