Happy New Year! As we kick off 2015 here at City Fruit, we’d like to share a few of our New Year’s resolutions. You won’t find any related to getting more exercise or reading more non-fiction literature (though those are perfectly adequate resolutions). We fruitheads are all about the produce!
Without further ado…
I resolve to remember my public health roots and invest energy in the larger system and policy changes necessary to ensure access to healthy food for all.Kate Morrison
I resolve to pick my plums before the neighbor gets them, and to make a boysenberry pie from my plants instead of just snacking on them.Hazel Singer, CF board member
I resolve to learn more about the varieties and histories of the fruit that grows in Seattle. Oh, and learn to do the juggling trick where you take a bit out of apples while you juggle them.Luke Jesperson
I resolve to do ten successful fruit tree grafts this year. When eating a fresh apple, I resolve to eat everything but the stem, just as I have since I was a kid. I resolve to try two new pie crust recipes and venture beyond my Betty Crocker basic recipe.Barb Burrill
I resolve to open bananas from the bottom (the right way, supposedly) and to eat kiwis with the skin on.Natalie Place
I resolve to perfect the art of blackberry pie making and to learn how to make lemon meringue pie using the lemons from my family’s Meyer lemon tree!Elan Ebeling
I resolve to personally harvest all of the fruit from the neglected Asian pear tree at the end of my street. No perfectly good fruit will go to waste!Brian Mickelson
We hope to accomplish a lot this year, and with your help, we can!
