EMBRACE IT

We hope you are slowing down and savoring and heeding Summer's siren call to ENJOY. We hope this message finds you beach walking, star gazing, lake jumping, long dinner enjoying, family visit taking, firefly chasing, and star gazing. We hope you take thetime to sit on a porch or deck and share a cup of coffee or summer cheer with a close friend as we have been taking the time too! There is a hecticness to summer, especially a North Country, one as short and oh so sweet as it is. So though many of us areall caught up in the Getting IT ALL DONE, as we are ever so guilty of doing, please find the quiet pause and revel in the beauty and joy that this season offers. It is truly a gift, we just need to pause and receive it.

SHOP CLOSED 10/17-10/23

Pigs are getting butchered, outbuildings are being worked on, friends are getting hitched (early CONGRATS Travis & Kyleleen!) and we're off to their wedding. So alas, dear friends, our online farmstand is closed for the week~ OCTOBER 17 to 23rd.  Hopefully you've got something healthy & fiber filled nearby to munch on (like my goat buddies here) while we're closed up and please do check back next week for more delicious fall flavors!

The Rally

 

The breeze ruffles in the trees. Third cups of coffee are poured. Snooze buttons are hit one extra time. This is it. This is the sprint, the rally, the grand finale. This is the last caress of summer and the first chilly embrace of autumn. We have had a truly lovely month or so of visits, of loved ones journeying to the Northwoods. Of lake jumping and ice cream cone dinners.  We are so grateful that each and every one of these beloveds came to see us, trekked 6hrs, 9hrs, whole days to visit the tip of the country...(Third Coast feels). I'm in the liminal space of staycation and work, fervor and rest. But, it's making it really hard to buckle back down and get busy, at a time when busy is needed. The garden is celebrating by abundantly gifting all the heat of summer bests...the plucky cherry tomatoes, the sturdy slicing tomatoes, the hearty beefcakes, I mean beefstake tomatoes, the rich sauce tomatoes.  All bringing their own flare to the banquet of summer's best.  There's hot peppers, mild peppers, bell peppers.  There's basil, and cukes and zukes.  If you aren't making salsas left and right, I'm not sure what you are doing with yourself.  Now is the time for putting up and putting by. Freezing, canning, drying, stocking the larder for the starker days to come.  Gratitude, now's the time for that.
