Heightened Senses With Less Light
4:44 pm is the hour the sun sets today; the moment when our daylight vanishes upon the horizon and a dark fall presence—not freezing, nor wet, but rather a quiet twilight encompasses the evening. As the November moon (also known as the Beaver or Frost moon) is in its waxing phase, moving from the sliver crescent into alluring fullness on November 12, we celebrate the true nature of our senses. As our visibility decreases, our other senses become more acute to the smells, sounds and feelings of the farm and its wildness.
We are quieting our days just slightly, and the fields are still filled with delicious veggies and the smells of sweet celery root, beets, leeks, kales and leaves falling to the ground. Their scents all mesh together, giving us the most wonderful olfactory day.
In these next few weeks, we will be highlighting and giving lots of gratitude to the many folks who make your farm boxes happen every week. Your weekly box starts with the curation and menu planning teams. Lots of veggies come from our Full Circle Farm in Carnation on Griffin Creek, but many other amazing local, organic farms contribute to the completion of building your final farm box each week.
We hope to highlight and bring to life some of the amazing people that make building your farm box happen in the coming quieter weeks. All of these people are intricately involved and work together to strengthen our food system by bringing local, organic produce to many. Your membership also helps many small farmers collaboratively tell their stories of stewardship and hardship in the most noble profession, share good food, good health, and a stronger environment in an inclusive, endearing community. Thank you for your contribution!
