Preserving The BOUNTY...

How perfectly
to at the same
always feel like
far too much 
and yet
never quite
-Tyler Knott Gregson-

BLESSED Saturday... from the farm, tis' the season
for winter's glory, that IS if summer's bounty
was a SURPLUS in '2014'!

There is NO better way to preserve summer's
bounty, than the GOOD, ole' fashion
'drying' way!

AND... here at the farm, herbs
are a MUST for harvesting & drying ALL
... in anticipation of those longer,
winter days that are SURE to arrive!

EVEN... veggie's are hurriedly gathered
before Old, Man Frost comes to visit!

While they are STILL fresh...
I string them one by one with a fine
needle & quilter's thread.


Shown here is autumn's bounty of
an HEIRLOOM variety... called
'Fish Pepper'!  THIS one, particular
variety get's TOP performer
in the garden & has a hotness
that goes BEYOND an jalapeno!
I grow this variety for culinary use,
as well as the BEAUTY it adds in
dried floral's & garlands!

The SIMPLEST of detail brings
a setting OR vignette to life!
And what better way... than using
the GLORIOUS wonder, in which
Mother Nature has to offer!

Hoping this inspires YOU...
to bring a bounty of nature indoors!

~BLESSED... day~
