little eorthe

This past Sunday Dan and I went out to our CSA farm, Little Eorthe, for a harvest celebration with all the other CSA shareholders.  There was a potluck style dinner and we all got to tour the farm to see where our food was grown and how everything worked!  I ate so much I thought I was going to explode.  Everyone brought such amazing food!  It was surprisingly nostalgic being on the farm.  Trudging through muck, avoiding piles of animal poop, and being among stacks of hay bales took me back to cleaning stalls, tossing hay into feed bins, and bringing horses in from paddocks back when I used to ride.

It was truly inspiring to visit the farm and see where the produce I've been eating was pulled from the earth.  The hard work that Little Eorthe puts in to produce responsibly farmed food is evident.  It's a modest endeavor, but I'm so so happy that we chose to give our money to Carrie and Ken Little instead of Safeway (though, we do end up at Safeway sometimes).  I wish that we could justify getting a full share next year instead of a half share again, but a half share is almost more than we can handle already.

I took a bunch of photos while we were out there because it was so beautiful, so be prepared for tons of photos.  We got to take home a squash, so I picked out a cinderella pumpkin.  We already had one from our CSA a couple weeks ago, but tis the season for pumpkin things and I have a bunch of pumpkin recipes I'd like to make in the next month.  I really want to make our front porch look fall-festive with our beautiful Little Eorthe pumpkins, but I'm worried they'll get stolen like our other pumpkins.
