Food For Thought: Those Who Plant

This quote seems relevant as I head to Cancun on vacation tomorrow. I expect to eat a lot of fresh fruit and other yummy things while there but it seems that I all too often don’t remember those who have contributed to making what we eat possible. I think of those who prepared the meal, who set the table, and maybe even the grocer from whom the food was purchased. This Vietnamese saying invites me to think a bit more deeply so that I might be grateful for those whose hands are integral to our food supply. “When eating a fruit think of the person who planted the tree.” I am grateful for those who plant the trees and seeds and through whose efforts I enjoy lovely things to eat!!
