Despite the sunny warmth this week, the chilly nights and fluttering leaves have me dreaming of the north woods, hearing the call of Superior. We will be making a brief escape in October, and will not be at the market on October 16.
We will be at the outdoor market through November 6, and head indoors on November 13. The first home delivery of the season will be Friday, November 12.
The walnut leaves are leaping, most not even waiting to turn yellow before racing to the ground. They leaf out last in the spring and fall first in the fall. Why waste energy on foliage when you have big nuts to grow?
"Walk around feeling like a leaf.
Know you could tumble any second.
Then decide what to do with your time."
