The Goodness of the Fall Harvest
It’s almost Saturday!
As we wrap up the last of the Halloween decorations and prepare for the coming holidays, we hope we can take time to feel connected to the earth’s turning and to one-another, as we collectively witness our own turn toward winter and this reflective and cozy season. This week we’ve felt the dips and swells of unpredictable temps between bright 80-degree days and cold rainy evenings. We turned our clocks back and are getting used to an early dusk. And we are keeping an eye on the hurricane/tropical storm as it develops while thinking of our farmers.
In all of this, we are reminded of the unique goodness of the fall harvest. Every week, we are blown away by the diverse array of produce on our farmers’ tables, with their bright rainbows of color. As we check in with our local livestock farmers, we are getting tips for perfect cold weather meals and dreaming of sitting around the table with our people and feeling gratitude for the goodness and nourishment given us through all the earth offers in this time. May we care for one-another, may we ask ourselves what we need in this season, may we walk the path of autumn, together. We love this season with you, Durham!
Will you join us at market? We can’t wait for you to come enjoy the sights, sounds, people, and plenty with us this weekend. See you there!
