Seems that autumn this year was a long time arriving. Living in the south-east has many wonderful advantages.....long hot humid summers can be an advantage if one is a gardener:) We have a climate that allows for 2 and sometimes 3 seperate crops. This is a good thing :)
The raised beds at Sage Hill Farms are all cleaned from the summer bounty and are now filling up fast with bright green -greens....turnip, mustard, collards, kale and a late lettuce.
Much of this crop will go to the farmers market, the local food distribution program, and serve as a cover-crop for the winters soil protection.
Autumn and winter are my favorite seasons, I adore the holiday's, the colors, and the connection that it all seems to bring among the people around us.
If you are a local reader or if you find yourself in our part of the country...we would be delighted to have you visit Sage Hill Farms...sit and chat, enjoy a cup of tea/coffee/autumn brew of your choice.:)
I hope you are eating as local as possible, as healthy as possible, and above all else...enjoying the journey~
Have a special Autumn season and be well~
