A Frosty Reminder to Give Thanks for the Harvest

Frosty Leaves


This morning it happened, our first real frost. 

We knew it was coming and yet it always seems so tragic walking around the garden after a heavy frost. The sweet smell of thawing leaves going limp. It is truly the beginning of the end of the growing Season.

However there is also the miracle of so many plants that simply laugh off the ice, becoming sweeter for it. 

This Friday will be the Harvest Market in Stirling, a celebratory market to end the season. If you haven’t had a chance to drop by the Market yet this year, this week lots of vendors will be there with Mill Street shut down to accommodate us all. I hear rumours of hot apple cider and perhaps some other warm treats too. Bundle up, come say hello and stock-up for the cooler months to come.

Speaking of Thanksgiving, at least one of our pumpkins had internal insect damage that I didn’t notice from the outside and sadly as a result the pie plans of one CSA member were cruelly foiled. If anyone else has this experience let me know so I can replace it for you.
