We're still canning, freezing and processing all the bounty from the gardens, fields and forests with the promise of cooler weather and a time to rest over the winter months. We are all looking forward to getting together at the end of the month with friends and family for our Thanksgiving feasts together. It's always a time to put together our best recipes to share with those we care about and to spend time with those we may not have seen for a stretch.
It's amazing how we look forward to spending time with others and it makes me realize just how important it is to be together. As much as our technology can be a lifeline of communication in our busy lives, being together and sharing moments of time, is the best!! I have more memories of moments with people I care about than email communications to those same folks.
Don't forget all the lovely and thoughtful gifts we can give to those we care about using the herbs, trees and other natural surprises in our own back yards. Let the aromatic herbs share their fragrances as well as their flavors, let your jams & relish, pickles and syrups restore and rejuvenate. Sometimes the simplest gifts are the best!!
Thank you to all our students, friends and supporters. You are all important to me and I am able to learn as much from you as I hope you can learn from me. You are all true treasures!!
It's a busy time as we look forward to the holiday season. My new motto is shop less and spend more (time that is!) It is a gift of love.
