We are certainly having a different winter experience this year than last. The picture reminds us of what we was outside our window last February. But it’s also a reminder that regardless of what it looks or feels like outdoors, Mother Nature still has her rhythm and the sap is flowing in the maple trees! Snow lovers remember it’s only the beginning of February, so don’t give up hope. A beautiful snow covered landscape here in the northwest hills may yet be in our future.
Our market schedule is a little choppy in February and March. Our next market after this is not until February 27. To find out when our next market day is, go to our web-site and it’s right on the opening page.
SAVE THE DATE! Our Winter Harvest Dinner will be held on March 19th and we’re delighted that last year’s team is returning – Executive Chef Samantha Tilley and event styling by Barbara Gugnoni and Sarah Worden. You will receive more information and instructions for getting tickets in a separate e-mail. In the meantime, you can purchase tickets at the market. If you are interested in volunteering to help with some of the tasks needed to put this dinner on, let us know.
