Masks on the Fisher Farm farmers this year, and on me. No tantalizing bins a-bloom with leafy greens, bright carrots, radishes, turnips, displayed around the shed-space. No leisurely browsing and choosing just the right head of lettuce that calls to me. Only a big brown paper bag, filled to the top with plastic-bagged goodies. We still choose our own wrapped flower bouquet.
Changes may not be ideal, but they’re better than cancellation. I’ll take it. Dinner salads this week have been heaven.
