It is November 1.
Our community garden is closed until next year (and, happily, it looks like there will be one next year.)
The growing season is over. Brown is the color of the day. Brown leaves fall from trees. Brown foliage lies where green was just a few days ago.
The farm stands are closed, their once overflowing wooden bins empty. Just last week, they overflowed with apples, cabbages, and cauliflower.
The pumpkins and gourds are gone, all hopefully going to good homes.
This morning, the realities of winter bear down on us as our farmers markets move indoors. This is the last day of daylight savings time. Why do we do this, anyway?
It's time to hunker down and make some late fall dishes. This week, I might just share one of those recipes with you.
What are you doing today?
