The weather shifted quickly on Friday evening as a cold front came thru. It was the first time this summer I put on a sweatshirt while it was still light! It was breezy and my son and I quickly became chilled playing in the yard with the dog. Saturday morning I was walking that same dog and all of a sudden I had to stand still. The smoke was gone! At least in Victor for a couple of hours in the morning. I could see the mountains clearly and remembered what color they are this time of year. What a treat! Saturday was also the first day I left the house open all day instead of closing it up to hide from the heat. The first hints of fall have arrived. I love noticing these little seasonal changes.
Biodynamically speaking, after the summer solstice the earth starts turning inward. It is still late summer, so the hints are subtle. The shares are getting heavier. We are being grounded just by the weight of the produce. Enjoy this window of transition. We will keep harvesting the summer treats as long as we can, and start introducing more treasures of fall.
