At the Blue Moon Lavender Farm this Fall, as we are getting ready for our mild winter, gathering the last plums and apples in the orchard, pressing cider, cleaning up and mulching the perennials, we look to our full freezer, jars of fruit and vegetables, apples and pears in boxes, dried fruit and herbs in the pantry, and realize we are ready. Ready for Holidays, for special gift giving, for sharing our gardens and orchards with family and friends. We are ready for early evenings and games of Scrabble®, for silly old movies, for books waiting in stacks on the living room table, but most of all we are ready for a change of seasons.
The change is just around the corner. Our larder full, we are ready for any eventuality. We hope for a mild winter, for sunny days, not much rain, for new discoveries and new ideas to be born and implemented in Spring. We enjoy this slower time on our farm, time to review, recollect and renew.
