Mistletoe and Farm Stand in Winter

Winter is here and so is the mistletoe at the stand!

IMG_1996Most of the leaves that nicely shaded the tree are gone but some winter time produce is appearing like lemons and permissions.

I added some mistletoe that I collected over the weekend in the Sierras to the stand today.  Last night I attended the Santa Clara Valley Bee Guild annual holiday dinner where we had concerning discussions about the new issues of bees and their declining health due to an assortment of newer pesticides, and systemic changes  to the plants and landscaping and agriculture.  The bees are like the canaries and tell us that we need to be developing safer and more natural approaches to agriculture and landscaping and we are poisoning our selves in many ways we have yet to understand, mostly in the name of business profits.
