green string nights

the fields at dusk--I love the purple cabbages!

the barn and note the steaming cauldron on far right

Another beautiful festival at green string farm! We arrive at dusk bundled up in warm wool coats and hats. A man by a steaming cauldron ladles what turns out to be blackberry tea into a jelly jar and brings me the steaming cup with a smile. What a way to be welcomed to the farm! Two other steaming cauldrons over glowing, warm fires contain hot soup, made from farm produce. Loaves of locally made bread and an enormous wooden salad bowl filled to overflowing cover the serving tables. Folks are milling around, laughing and talking and checking out the baked goods and homemade jams. Inside, talks on bees are happening and a kids area beckons Lukas with crayons and hay bales. This farm is one of the most welcoming places in town, and the way they celebrate with the community is very inspiring. The food is great too!

      Green String is the best–they have eggs and beef and cheese and other stuff too. I seem to have fallen behind in my blog–we’ll have to get back up again… Would love to see you sometime soon!

    I try to take picture like that too, it reminds me of a patch work quilt!
