Fall Planting, Planning and Petrichor

Fall Planting, Planning and Petrichor

Hi farm friends!

I am writing on a deliciously wet and rainy morning. The world smells of petrichor, the fragrance of parched earth receiving the grace of water and releasing the scents of growth, grace and renewal. It's fully Fall here now, and we are winding down commerce for the year. There's a few fun events in the next few weeks I want to announce, and a last chance to order fruit for the year, so read on for the details.

Persimmons & Hoshigaki Workshop

This workshop is this Saturday, Nov 12th from 10 am - 12 pm, and we still have spots available. Please join me for a walk through the persimmons in the orchard where we will talk about different varieties and the growing of persimmon trees. Afterwards, I will demonstrate how to make hoshigaki, a Japanese persimmon drying technique, and send you home with the fruit to make your own. Sign up here!

Wreath Making Workshop

We also have room left in the Wreath Making Workshop on November 26th. Come make a holiday wreath to decorate your home or give as a gift. I have been drying roses to add to your wreaths, so they will look amazing. Sign up here!

Holiday Plant Sale

Our last event for the year will be a grand plants and gifts sale on Saturday, December 10th, from 10 am - 2 pm. We have potted roses, fancy daffodil bulbs, forced paper whites, ranunculus, anemones, and more. Mark it on your calendars and come on by!

Fall Fruit for Sale

We are starting to run low on apples and pears in cold storage, and they will be gone in a few more weeks so get your orders in while we still have inventory.

And for our far away friends, I am also actively harvesting persimmons and they are one of the few fruits we ship around the country. You can order them to be shipped to your door anywhere in the lower 48 here.

Winter Holidays and The Year to Come

We close down the farm from mid-December to mid-January, to take a well deserved rest and plan for next year.  Is there anything you want to do, see or buy here next year? Let me know! I am always looking for new ideas.

We will be back at the end of January with a winter tree pruning workshop, and the year begins anew. In the meantime, everyone stay warm and cozy out there.
