… the days of Summer seem to fade into cooler nights.
… we anticipate the coming school year and all of it's trimmings.
… memories of apple cider, pumpkin stew, and roasted beets creep into the menu planning for the week.
… and the whirlwind of summer has left us with tired minds but full stomachs!
I apologize for the four weeks of blog posts which are missing. It was my best intent to be very regular in writing weekly, but alas, not so. I am sorry to say that today my husband and I will be taking Alex, one of our farm helpers, back to the train station today. He's on the way north, to Burlington, Vermont. When my family lived in Vermont, Alex and I worked together at Middlebury Natural Foods Co-op. He was first in responding to my request for help this summer at the farm and we've enjoyed his acrobatic stunts and loyal help on Calvert Farm. We will miss him dearly and hope to see him back later this year or next summer. Thank you Alex!
And now….. some ideas for some of the veggies you've been receiving these past weeks.
Surely we all love Watermelon, but just incase you want to try a little flare for a typical summertime treat:
