  • Our buddies @fernworks and @killaspro, bringing their weirdo finest to Halloween!
  • The view off the kitchen, out onto our patio, of the fire ring and the canary yellow-hued leaves of the ginkgo beyond. We wait for that tree to turn color and gently drop its leaves all year. A sudden, early frost last October caused all of the leaves to drop overnight, while still green. This year, we got the golden ticket. Proof positive that some things truly are worth the wait. Happy All Souls Eve!

  • I'm sure gonna miss this view when the leaves are all gone! Forecast calls for snow tomorrow evening, on Halloween night. What the what?!
  • For today's #tbt, I'm sharing an image of the altar @shelterprotectsyou and @sheltercollective built on our property for their wedding here last month. Such a beautiful, memorable day that was, filling our little forested cove with happy juju for weeks. Love watching the scene shift as the foliage changes.
  • Felt a shift in the air today, this afternoon in particular. The veil is getting thin. You feeling it, too?
  • SO much love for @forvillagers and her heavenly homesteading/hearth-tending supply store in West Asheville. Stopped in today for a bag of organic chicken feed and to see what's new in the shop. I'll be teaching a

Mary Jane’s Farm Food Day

It’s coming up, folks! In just three weeks from today, I’ll be in St. Paul, Minnesota, teaching a class on making, and canning, jam as part of Mary Jane’s Farm Food Day at The Creative Connection Event.

Hope to see some of you there! Hubs and Huxley are coming, too. I’ve never been to Minnesota before, so if any of you have suggestions for places to visit or eat at for the fellas while I’m at the conference, I’d love to hear them!

    Welcome to St. Paul! Great suggeestions so far… Brasa has a St.Paul and Minneapolis location — family style and kid friendly. It is lovely.
    My son really enjoys the MN Zoo (~25 min from downtown St. Paul). There is so much to do. Farmer's Market on Saturday and Sunday mornings in St. Paul…

  • Anna says:

    I also recommend Brasa — it's close to downtown. The farmer's market is definitely fun to check out. There are some nice lakes in minneapolis with great trails for walking around. Heartland is a really nice restaurant right near the farmer's market in St Paul — they use a lot of local ingredients, pretty upscale but I believe they do weekend brunch… I'm looking forward to the conference, too. I've never been to anything like this before but I'm glad to have the opportunity since it is here in St Paul.

    Como Zoo and the MN Children's Museum are not to be missed kid destinations, even for babies!

    Welcome to our fair state :) The Happy Gnome is a favorite of my husband and I, located in the Cathedral Hill Neighborhood of St. Paul. It has great food, drinks, and a wonderful patio w/ a big stone fireplace.

    Mill City Farmer's Market, tour the Guthrie Theater…for free, and definitely walk around any of the lakes; however, I'm partial Nokomis and the planes flying overhead. Also, if you like beer, drink a Surly. Have fun!
