What’s Good Weekly 1-20-22

Hello everybody we hope you had a good week and you’re feeling all right!  It got into the high 50’s last week so that was exciting.  I’m predicting no more snow in Seattle this Winter but we got new norms, a stretch of 90’s and almost annual snowfall is what it’s changed to in my lifetime.  From never and once every 3-4 years is a big change and if you are noticing the same thing and not imagining it you are reading the right newsletter.  Local Yokels cares a lot, we care about the changing climate, we care about Listeria recalls from big agra corporations, we care about supply chain woes and empty shelves, we care about small farms growing...
