“Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.”
– Albert Camus
The nights are getting cooler, and the days are growing shorter, though I have to admit, the days are still pretty hot! After spending some time up at my folks’ vacation house in beautiful Door County, Wisconsin, I am back in the sultry south, refreshed, recharged, and ready to kick ass this autumn. I do hope that the weather starts to turn for the cooler, though, as we’ve already experienced some failures due to the ongoing heat, but alas, such is farming!
During my absence, my good man Matt held down the fort, harvesting the okra daily, and keeping the chickens fed and the eggs collected. He found a secret hiding spot that the girls have been laying in for some time now, so now the eggs are pouring in every day! We’re going to have to figure out a way to break them of this habit and actually lay in their nesting boxes, but for now, get ready for some delicious, non-GMO, pasture-raised, woodlot eggs, with the most golden yolks you’ve ever beheld, I guarantee it!
Come out to the NoDa Farmer’s Market tomorrow from 8am to Noon to see Matt and get your hands on some veggies and eggs! Get there early, or you may miss out on the organic goodness!
I wanted to let you know, contrary to what the brochures may say, enrollment in the Street Fare Farm Fall CSA is still open! If you haven’t gotten your sign-up sheet in the mail yet, and was worried that you had missed the deadline, there is still time! Registration will remain open until all the shares are filled, but sign up soon before the shares run out!
I hope you all have a wonderful week!
