Evening supper with houseguests
It was a dark and cool August morning. It was a dark and cool August morning? Well, I’ll be! The last few days have been a welcome relief to even sunshine worshippers like me. I have never been interested in recognition for extremes. I’m just content to quietly (or loudly as it is sometimes) grow food in my little corner of the world. But somehow I’ve been scooped up into a region that seems hell bent on setting some kind of weather record each year. Year one: drought. Year two: record rainfall. Year three: record heat. I can only let my imagination wander so far in its prediction of next year’s record!
Speaking of year three: Tumbling Shoals Farm is certified organic!!! I don’t have my hands on the actual certificate yet but it was supposed to be mailed to me on Monday. As you can imagine, we are very excited.
Farm Tour is this weekend. Saturday and Sunday from 2p.m. to 6p.m. Tumbling Shoals Farm is on the tour, but there are many more farms. For more information, check out the Blue Ridge Women in Agriculture website: http://brwia.org/node/479. We hope to see you out this weekend.
