while perusing the market i found a new farmer there and she had one pumpkin on display...of course in my excitement i asked her if she would sell it...she said this is a farmer's market...i would sell you anything. okay...so i bought my first pumpkin.
now i proudly have it on diplay on the kitchen table on an etched glass cake pedestal...it is beautiful after all.
we have been eating all the good stuff provided by our garden, vendors at the farmer's market and our csa (community supported agriculture.)
on the menu this last week was stuffed peppers...a favourite of my darling hubby.
we bought shares of their farm and get a wonderful basket of goodies every saturday...this was one of our july baskets. those little sungold cherry tomatoes are the most delicious...i call them nature's candy. a little phrase i coined to get my little grand girl ellery to eat more fresh fruit. straight from the garden to the table sliced tomatoes and cucumbers with cuban bread toasted.
banana cake just out of the oven baked by rachel(oldest daughter)...still warm.
what's up for tonight fresh corn on the cob and i don't know what else.

I am a happily married woman of 27 years. I lived in Florida for 40 years and moved to Tn in 2000. We lived in the city of Brentwood for 6 years and move to Leiper's Fork in May of 2007. We have been in the country for about six years now on a 7.24 acre farm. We call it Dash Home Farm. Da-for Dave and Sh-for Sharon. We live in a victorian farmhouse made to look old(it acts old). We love the community of Leiper's Fork and the quaintness of the town (no lights).

" The ability to simplify means to eliminate the unnecessary so that the necessary may speak. "
"whatever we are waiting for -- peace of mind, contentment, grace, the inner awareness of simple abundance -- it will surely come to us, but only when we are ready to receive it with an open and grateful heart."
