Here we are at the end of the season, our 21st. Although we thought we might extend our season by one week due to having to cancel several weeks ago, we are ending today.

Our winter market begins on November 10th, so you won’t have to go too long...

I love the change of seasons. I have lived someplace where we didn’t have such drastic changes as we have in New England. Winter is my least favorite season, although for my son Jeff, who is an expert skier, it is his favorite.

Apologies for putting the wrong date in last week’s newsletter for Outlook Farm’s next festival. It’s a Pumpkin Festival, and it is on October 21st; it starts at noon. FYI, I purchased a bottle of Riesling wine from them last week, and the people...

It’s the time of year when produce is so abundant that you should consider putting some of it by for the colder months. It really isn’t hard to do at all. Even canning isn’t hard. There are books in the library that will instruct you.

I catered a dinner after a funeral the other day, and for the vegetables just sliced cucumbers and tomatoes. At this time of year, they are so delicious that we don’t need complicated food to enjoy it. A really pretty salad is to take different...

I would like those of you use HIP to know that we did not design it. We have nothing to do with it other than having it available at our market. So, if you get frustrated because you don’t understand it, don’t take it out on those of us who run...
