Fall-the bittersweet season

Fall on the farm is my favorite season.  It’s sweet because all the vegetables left are at their flavor peak and look beautiful in autumn’s low light.  It’s sweet because it means summers’ busy pace is slowing down, which means more time for family, good food, and some fall hikes.   It’s bitter because we have already lost a few of our favorite crops to frost like our outside tomatoes, cucumbers, beans, and basil and cold temps are coming which means we will be eating less fresh veggies and more of what we were able to preserve and store.  This is the cycle of the seasons and I love to soak up what each one has to offer.  Here are a few snapshots of what we are enjoying right now.
