A Truck Driving Dog....

   (Photos shown in this post were taken last season at a farmers market in Lanesboro, MA)

Pretty soon fresh produce will be available for our eating pleasure and good health.

Without a doubt, I'm drawn to organic vegetables, grown without harmful pesticides.

They are part of the splendorous offerings of warmer months in New England as well as many other locales.

I cannot help but think of how hard all farmers work for a living. 

During the past couple of years, I've had the pleasure of knowing the son,Bera, of an organic farmer, Mark Dunau, from Delaware County in New York State.

Not only does Mr. Dunau, senior, work hard for a living as an organic farmer, he's a musician, too. 

He has an original song and video on You Tube that's a "tribute  to truck driving dogs everywhere."

It's titled "Truck Driving Dog."
We often don't give dogs and farming much thought.
Many thanks Mr. Dunau and farmers everywhere for their all the back breaking work they do to bring fresh veggies to our tables.

Also, thanks to Mr. Dunau and his equally hard-working son, Bera, for allowing me to share the video on this blog! 

 And now, while we wait and dream of those fabulous fresh vegetables-to-come, here's "Truck Driving Dog" for your viewing and listening pleasure.

I like the bumper  sticker shown on the truck in the video that reads "Got food? Thank a farmer."

( p.s. Mr. Dunau's newest song and video, all about a 2012 Kentucky Derby winning horse, "I'll Have Another," can be seen on You Tube, too. Check it out.)

The organic veggies are very expensive here. I buy them from time to time ..wish I could go to a farmer's market but they are always on when I'm at work and over by the time I get home. These look so delicious. I love wax and green beans!

Hi Susan, trying to get back to blogging~we have lots of farmer's markets here when the produce is available. It is more expensive. I buy it whenever possible, especially berries.
You are making me hungry.

The best organic veggies are the ones you grow in the back yard then you know what has been sprayed on them or not.

Nellie said...

Though organic foods carry a higher price tag, I believe it to be in our best interest to buy them whenever possible. We are organic gardeners for our own vegetable garden; therefore, why would I purchase vegetables that had been treated when I shop elsewhere?

This season, however, the garden space is still too wet for working due to our greater than average rainfall - almost 8 inches above average. My husband is really anxious to work in the soil, but we must still wait for drying. More rain in this week's forecast, too.

Enjoy your Monday!

Catchy and cute! He sounds like Neil Diamond. :) I'm a vege girl all the way. The sad part is we don't know what is being done to most of our food these days. Italy does not allow GMO foods and yet in the States sometimes it seems like anything goes whether it's actually safe or not. It's great you are able to get organic foods and that you can visit farmers markets. Have a great week. Tammy P.S. Every time you change your profile picture, I think "who is that woman?" Ha! :)

Dogs and veggies. Cool!

Our dogs were always too stinky from hunting in the ditch banks to be allowed to ride in the truck cabs.

Hugs and Blessings
