Ode to October
Ode to October.
Oh October, the light hanging low
Just brushing the brilliant colors in the trees,
Sweatshirts in the mornings, sleeveless in the afternoon.
My gratitude builds with each ray of sunshine,
Even filtered through whimsical clouds. Bees are busy foraging the last of the blooms,
But my pantry is already stocked
And there’s time to just enjoy.
Porches were made for these days.
A slow down, a tucking in,
A satisfaction of a job near complete,
Of people fed.
This is October.
Here's what we're harvesting for you this week:
Baby Bok Choy: $3.95/pound
Hakurei salad turnips: $3/bunch
