There are only 4 more summer share pick-up days at our farm. Then we wait a whole month till mid November for the start of the once a month winter share of root crops and occasional greenhouse greens.
So I plan to really enjoy this next month. Since drawing lessons also happen on Thursdays (our pick-up day) I'm giving up my writing time that day so we can spend more time at the farm; wandering through the orchard, playing on the tire swing, discovering new fields. Smelling, soaking and playing in fall. I hate to say it but the season that follows fall is coming soon enough and I plan to make these days linger.
(PS. I can't believe I forgot to add this. The perfect farm book to read aloud this time of year is Charlotte's Web. It's one of the few books we own. I'm reading it to the kiddos right now (2nd time around, we read it 2 years ago also) and it's so cozy, sweet & hopeful. Sigh... I love it.)
