Storing SunshinePosted: October 16, 2012
Well, the weather service was right. Raining hard now, and blowing about 30. Forecast for more of the same. All those blue skies couldn’t last forever, so now we have to hope that, like Frederick the Mouse, we were able store some sunshine for the rainy season ahead.
Stacy’s been bringing in the winter squash–acorn, butternut, kabocha and some that I don’t know the names of–for curing before storage. We’re already looking forward to eating it. The first really good push of chanterelles should be coming up soon, and salmon will pour into the rivers on rising water. All good.
This year, it’s also book season. Skyla and I went to the Pacific Northwest Booksellers Association trade show to promote Closer To The Ground on Saturday night. We had an awesome time and met lots of exceptionally nice people. Best of all was when people asked Skyla to sign the book along with me. Here’s to a great and productive season.
