As the solstice approaches, the winter season's offerings grace our table. We're reading "Braiding Sweetgrass" by Robin Kimmerer and the author's appreciation of nuts feels just right as the daylight wanes. Kimmerer shares her Native American food ways, saying nuts are "good winter food. High in calories and vitamins - everything you needed to sustain life. After all, that's the whole point of nuts: to provide the embryo with all that is needed to start a new life."
While our almond trees rest following their season of abundance, we enjoy the fruits of their labor. May this season bring new intention and new life. To you & yours, happy holidays.
