Fall Gardening Lessons

Went to visit my dear friend Kristine, the Herbal Momma, on her farm out in the country. We're in the trailing edge of growing season, but she blessed me with fresh produce including carrots and this gorgeous cabbage straight out of the garden.

Also grabbed up a box of fresh pears she'd collected from the farmers on the far side of the mountain.

Then we played with chickens and the goat, and had an altogether lovely afternoon. It was a delightful way to shake off my funk.

I need to spend more time in gardens.
