October!

2 Comments

Hmmmmm, how did October get here so quickly? It seems like just yesterday that it was August…

September was a very busy and exciting month, full of changes and adjusting to those changes.  The new job has been a whirlwind and a lot of fun – September is a very busy time at my organization so I literally hit the ground running.

It’s also been a month of changes at the farm, things are entering their last harvest and the fields look much different than they did in high summer.  Week thirteen, September 8th, was still pretty summery, but I could feel fall creeping up…

Week fourteen, September 15th, brought the farm’s first foliage…

I wasn’t at the farm for week fifteen, so the changes that came in week sixteen seemed pretty drastic – it really looks like the end of the season…

And, by the time I left the farm at 6:45 pm this is what it looked like:

Yup, fall is definitely here.  The CSA boxes weigh a ton due to the harvest – Bill weighed last week’s box and it weighed 35 lbs!  The half-gallon of cider, apples and potatoes that we got may have had something to do with that.

  1. The farm looks somehow even more beautiful at the change of seasons to me. There’s something about that soft, golden light of October, resting on the drying leaves and warm-colored fruit and veggies. Gorgeous.
