Fall Song 

“Another year gone, leaving everywhere its rich spiced residues: vines, leaves,

the uneaten fruits crumbling damply in the shadows, unmattering back

from the particular island
of this summer, this NOW, that now is nowhere

except underfoot, moldering
in that black subterranean castle

of unobservable mysteries — roots and sealed seeds
and the wanderings of water. This

I try to remember when time’s measure painfully chafes, for instance when autumn

flares out at the last, boisterous and like us longing to stay — how everything lives, shifting

from one bright vision to another, forever in these momentary pastures.”

poem written by Mary Oliver


Harvesting winter squash before the rains with a lightning filled sky and a huge feeling of relief!  Bring on the rain.  Our dear farm needs it.  

A big, wonderful welcome to Fall and Happy Autumnal Equinox to you all!  Also, RAIN! (thank you all for your rain dances over the weekend – we sure do need it!) Now, if it happens to actually rain this week (we’ve become skeptics) it means that we will be having CSA pick up in our propagation greenhouse next to the parking lot.  That way you, the produce and your farmers stay nice and dry!

Enjoy the week and we’ll see you all soon!

With regards,

your farmers
