Cute Kitties, a New Lamb/Eggplant Recipe, and Upcoming Retreats

I've got lots of fun things planned for the blog this fall. Looking forward to sharing so many projects with you all. Because you asked.... Here are Mittens' kittens taken two days ago. Kitten on the left (Mia) is spoken for. The other three are looking for a home and are available week of September 17.

For those of you loving eggplant, I've got a new recipe up on our Leyden Glen Lamb Website for Eggplant, Lamb and Tomato Stacks. The Farmer (who is not a fan of eggplant) loved this meal. Serve with a side of couscous or grain and a salad.  Here is the link.

Eggplant, Lamb and Tomato Stacks
I can feel autumn encroaching. The days are getting shorter, we're thinking about closing the windows in the evening, and the fall color is starting to happen. There is still time left to enjoy the shorter days and all that autumn has to offer - including the cooler weather for knitting and creating. Here at the farm, I've planned some new classes. Here they are:
