"After the keen still days of September, the October sun filled the world with a mellow warmth…the Maple tree in front of the doorstep burned like a gigantic red torch.  The Oaks along the roadway glowed yellow and bronze.  The fields stretched like a carpet of jewels, emerald and topaz and garnet.  Everywhere she walked the color shouted and sang around her…In October any wonderful thing might be possible."  - Elizabeth George Speare

Last(ish) CSA of the Season - a couple more weeks

Today's CSA, from our wonderful members picking up their shares to the color of the produce we pulled out of the ground, reminds me why and how much I will miss the 2016 summer CSA.

And this is the recipe I gave for the Connecticut Farm to Table Cookbook. Learn more here: <http://www.connecticutfarmtablecookbook.com>.
