Harvest Time. Foodlink Community Time.

  When a community comes together for a harvest dinner in an area like ours, it’s typically a time to share the bounty, hopefully after the corn has been chopped and the season’s last cutting of hay is undercover.  This fall’s Foodlink dinner is Friday, October 19 from 6-9 pm. Our community came together at our barn four times last… Read more →

What’s there for you to harvest?

    The year’s Harvest Moon makes its appearance in our sky tonight.  If Mother Nature cooperates with clear enough skies, it will rise at about the same time the sun sets.  Our first Americans had descriptive names for all of the full moons of the year.  Aptly named for our corner of the globe, Harvest Moon is also known as… Read more →

….but that’s just not ME.

      It’s Monday morning, it’s still dark outside, so I’m going to hit the snooze button. I’ve got a lot going on this week, so the idea of trying something new?…something I’ve never really done before?  That’s just not me.

The four members of my family–two high school girls, my husband and myself–all process “back to school” very differently. This summer, for the first time… Read more →

Warming up from the inside out

  When you are truly conscious of your breath–your deep, fully expansive inhale and exhale–holding a static pose or flowing,  yoga warms you up from the inside out. Isn’t that what we want this time of year?  We want to wear layers of shirts that we can peel off during the warmest part of the day.  We want to feel… Read more →

King of the Compost

Our black lab/beagle (listen to his whoo-hoo!) mix, Zoni, is not only our family’s trusted, much loved companion, he is our four legged farm manager as well. Zoni smells everything coming and going from our compost heap, feels it heating up and wonders “what’s in there for me?” Nothing. But it’s a valued job and someone has to do it! Read more →
