Hellllo from the Farm
Coming back into ourselves as the sun's apeture becomes lower over the sky the days decent into nights and we feel the urge to fill our bellies with hardy flavoursome winter style fare. I love winter and the cold - time to reflect - as I get a break from the break neck fury of summer and the seemingly endless abundance that he brings from the garden. This year's highlight (reverse psychology) was the invasion of fruit fly into our community for the 1st time. Everyone was going a into red alert mode and though we have had some evidence of there presence on the farm I still have not seen an adult fruit fly here!?
Some happy snaps brings to you a 'Watermelons Radish' which I peeled to give the impression of a flower (much more like a radish than a watermelon!) The white eggplants that I have been enjoying this season and the morning mist that greets us here on the river when the heat from the ground mixed with the crisp nights creates a eery mist and godly dawns.
Special thanks to the crew at Cumulus who served up a delightful feast on Saturday night the green tomato gazpacho soup was very delicious and the pumpkin sorbet expertly crafted. It was a lovely evening.
Quadruple treat this weekend. Friday Stall with Sophie and Carl, Fairfeild with Aya and Hawthorn (me) on Saturday and Fleminton (Brother Jimmy mixing the deck aka selling vegetables) on Sunday. The summer feasting will end soon enough so come and enjoy it before we're all eating broccoli again!
