September is almost here. We are excited to welcome the Fall projects to our list. Bees have been robbed and their luscious golden honey is in the jars. Cider has been pressed from our apples ( a dream come true for us ). Wool is being washed in preparation for processing into roving and yarn. The ewes are just about ready for the breeding season. It is a busy and rewarding time of the year.
The fall garden is going in this week. Many types of greens are on the agenda as well as root crops. Rutabagas, turnips, carrots, parsnips, lettuces, kale, collards, spinach and cabbage. In our climate these crops will do well for most of the fall and winter season. Some will winter over into spring. We are blessed.
Grapes are ready for harvesting. Most of our nuts are enjoyed by the animals instead of us…wish we had more.
The pictures are varied this time…..a picture of the registered Finn rams who are all for sale…….a picture of the August Spin/Knit Crochet In where the “Fiber Vibes ” were rampant!……. A woven sample from an 1870’s pattern at the Kinston CSS Neuse Museum woven by Sally Smith for the museum . ….and finally some colorful knitting.
Our September Knit/Spin/Crochet In will be on the 15th from 10-3 in the Red Barn Studio on our farm. We invite you to join the Fiber Vibes Group where we share the infectious Fiber fun which often mutates into different Fiber ideas for different people. When you share your Fiber ideas where will they go? Join the Fiber Fun on September 15th at the Red Barn Studio. See you then.
