My Favorite Season by hilloah

It is hard to work today. Fall is my favorite season and the picture on my desktop is the epitome of dusk, towards the end of the day.  I want to be home to decorate for fall. Pumpkins, corn husks (yum, our corn was good tasting this year – not too much, but very good), I have a Sev Ickes’ print of Halloween to put up, tablecloth, placemats and napkins to change, furniture to dust, polish and rearrange: all those wonderful chores to do in October.

 In the gardens we are slowly getting ready to turn over crops that are through, adding horse manure, rice hulls, and lime. The last ingredient is necessary as we are surrounded by pine acid – trees and need to alkaline the soil. Rice hulls help to aerate the soil and the horse manure is the best fertilizer we have found, and it is local:  from our neighbor.

I love to eat and make pumpkie pie. I have to admit, however, that Living Light’s raw vegan pumpkin pie with whipped cashew cream is quite delightful. I am not sure all the recipes that Cherie and Vinnette will be teaching in Pastry Arts – Unbaked! 1 and 2, but I can hardly wait. Sometime the students and Vinnette bring down samples – yummmmmm!

  • It’s Pumpkin Season at Living Light! by kristin October 19, 2013
    We enjoyed a foggy morning here on the beautiful Mendocino coast of northern California. Dan and Cherie have returned from a five-week jaunt which took them to the northeastern United States, then off to Europe – swinging London, the canals of Amsterdam, a whirlwind tour of Berlin, a memorable Ann Wigmore memorial in chilly Lithuania, […]
