I've been using my pottery studio, throwing lots of vases and mugs. I won't be able to use the studio for clay in the winter so it is a race to try to get things made. Frozen clay is a nightmare so I will have to bring it all in. I will paint the surfaces of the unfired pots with underglazes inside when the weather gets cold. It is going to be a challenge to store all the ware - especially because it is fragile in the greenware state.
Here is the little shed. In the background you can see the colors turning gold ever so slightly on the hill behind it.
I've been meaning to post here, have taken photos of things around the farm and then couldn't find the time to actually sit down and do it. We are still doing two Farmers Markets per week. Last week at the Northampton Tuesday Market, I was happy to meet a lovely longtime blog reader from Richmond, Virginia. I wish I could remember your name! You made my market stopping by in the over 90 degree hot humid weather. Thanks for stopping by.
Here are some photos from two weeks ago. Hard to believe how short the plants were in my garden.
In two weeks, it now looks like this.
Crazy growth for sure.
Here are some of the geraniums I overwintered in the house. They are blooming so beautifully now. Does anyone know if I should cut them back when I bring them in again or should I cut them back in the spring? I am pretty useless with houseplants.
We've had crazy hot humid weather and now quite cold fall-like air. My heart goes out to all the folks in the south dealing with the massive flooding.
I hope you all are squeezing in some fun in these last days before the madness begins again. XO
