We are about half way through the season! The feeling of summer ending carries with it this heaviness but fret not, (Nature permitting) we will have Fall crops coming in soon! I have planted cabbage, broccoli, kale, collards, turnips, fennel, arugula! I am hoping that the expected cooler Fall weather will take good care of these crops and we can all share the bounty.  This year the Fall Equinox is on September 22 – which is less than a month away!

 

I would like to get your feedback about what you may like to enjoy. So when you stop by, do let me know! Even if I cannot get these crops for this season, it will help me plan for next year and I certainly want to grow things that you will look forward to eating.

 

 

I hope that you are staying cool and eating well!

 

your farmer,

Kripa

 

 

A Little Something Else

 

The Bee is not Afraid of Me

By Emily Dickinson

 

The bee is not afraid of me,

I know the butterfly;

The pretty people in the woods

Receive me cordially.

The brooks laugh louder when I come,

The breezes madder play.

Wherefore, mine eyes, thy silver mists?

Wherefore, O summer’s day?
