This is the season where my passions collide.

Harvest is upon us, the bees have given us their gift of liquid love. Jars of canning line the pantry and the drying porch is filling up.

 

As I wrap up the garden for this year, my thoughts go to my studio and all the pots waiting to be born. Fall in my studio is like spring in the garden. The promise of new life, new ideas. It’s an intense time with endings and beginnings. The spring marks the end of the studio intensive, the door swings open and we head outdoors. The fall brings fires in the wood stove, big pots of soup simmering and a sketch book of ideas to bring forward.

This Saturday we are celebrating the harvest with the 2nd annual Garlic Festival.

Local garlic growers will be here, selling culinary and seed garlic. We will be sampling garlic inspired dishes and of course pizza. I will be offering garlic storage pots.

  1. I have been dreading the end of our growing season, but after reading your post, my hope has been restored. I am looking forward to the falling leaves, sewing quilts, cups of hot tea, warm blankets and good books. Thank you for the inspiration.
