Blessed in the ‘Ham

Bellingham Farmer's Market, fall 2011

At the farmer’s market yesterday, in line at the Grace Harbor Farms stand, a guy next to me remarked, ‘You people don’t know how good you have it here.’

He didn’t just mean because we can enjoy GHF’s honey yogurt anytime we want (although that is a good thing.) He was taking in the whole of the farmer’s market and, I’m guessing, the gestalt experience of life in Bellingham.

‘Oh, yes, we do!’ I replied with a smile and without missing a beat. ‘And where are you from?’

‘Vegas,’ he answered.

Hmmm. Yeah, well, I guess the contrast would be enough to knock you over with a head of lettuce.
