A Note from the Farmer's Wife
It never fails. The first week of September, even if the days are hot, the first hints of fall appear. A solitary bright red leaf, fallen on the dirt roadway between the rows of kale, or a flurry of monarch butterflies wending their way southward, and the classic honk of a “v” of geese as if we lived in a story book. At the farm signs of fall show up in my kitchen. Even after all these years, the Farmer still romantically leaves little surprises in my kitchen, heralds of the next season’s bounty. This week a pumpkin and a few sweet potatoes appeared mysteriously on the counter top. This turns my head from looking back at zucchini and beans lost to summer, and ahead to broccoli, sweet greens, butternut and the rest of the fall bounty, some of the best vegetable eating of the year, still ahead of us.
