May All Berries Be Happy!

I was asked the other day about Farmer’s Market Jam’s motto — “May all berries be happy.” There is a type of meditation called metta, in which one concentrates on wishing living things well — the meditator starts with him or herself, and moves outward, until he or she wishes “May all beings be happy. ” Now I don’t know, but if I was a berry, I couldn’t think of a happier place to be than encased in a gel of sucrose with all of my close relatives.

New this week —¬†Marionberry, Pluot, Apricot-pineapple, Blueberry, and some Apricot-Blueberry. I’m taking Sunday off, so I won’t be at the Fremont Market, but I’ll be at Issaquah.
