Living is not enough. One must have sunshine, freedom, sea spray and a little salty air.

IMG_9616     Funny how things come to an end. We have two more weeks of farmers market  but things are definitely cruising to a halt… sort of a slow coast, not unlike running out of gas.
We’re due for a light frost in the fields, and it looks like more coming in the next week or so… Three weeks ago we were farming half naked just trying to deal with the humidity… and now, now the squash is all pulled up, the heirloom tomatoes are now stored in their winter jars, the gorgeous basils–Genovese, ruby, and holy basil have all been harvested and hung to dry…  the eggplant is in the active retching process of giving up the ghost… we have more bare ground than not, just a few last hangers on, the last willing participants of the 2018 growing season. Even the girls are happily running around scratching and pecking, making my finishing garden tasks a lot easier when I get to turn on the tiller one last time for the year.


I love this time… the later fall harvest is a little less sexy, but nourishing in its own way.


For me the annual farm harvest is likened to the beach. In the spring it doesn’t matter whats going on, we just are excited to be going to the beach again…



…… the summer is the best time for the beach, its hot, we’re in the mood and brings a special level of satisfaction…


……. but the fall is magic, the crowds have thinned, there is enough time & space to breathe deeply and take the time to feed that part of ourselves that has been neglected all summer long.
As beautiful as it is here in the summer, its easy to become a prisoner to the wind… the fall brakes those binds and brings us long awaited deep soul  vegetables, a much slower pace, warming comfort foods and much needed solitude… Can you feel it too?  Thank goodness for fall.
