 h1. Dear readers,

 Independence Day may be a good time to reflect on dependence — how dependent most of us are on one another when it comes to our food. Consider my simple breakfast: Dozens of people made it possible for me to eat my granola with fresh Oregon strawberries and yogurt, my glass of orange juice, and my cup of coffee. And boy, am I grateful. 

 We can't express enough gratitude to farmers on this site, and that includes farmworkers — the people who harvest much of the food we eat. Check out the slideshow of photos from Rick Nahmias' new book, The Migrant Project. We can all afford to be more aware of the work these people do and the challenges they face.

 Kim Carlson
 Editorial Director
