Rain in the forecast. Sigh. I feel the relief of these Autumn days deep in my bones. More forgiveness from the land, more space to breath and think and dream.

This is the season of "do all the things at once" - Weed, water, transplant, bed prep, harvest, harvest, harvest, seed. This is the mountain we climb to have fresh produce well into the fall.

We are grateful for you ALL! And for the BOUNTY, we say woah!  Tomatoes and Celery and Shishitos peppers are here! The corn is tasseling. Shallots are curing in the field.
