I love the Granville Farmer's Market for many reasons. We all have our favorite spots - for us a weekend treat is the Farmer's Market BLT and regular blog readers know this. This weekend Organic Fix- a green smoothie- hit the spot, Clare was delighted with woopie pies for her dessert and red raspberries far different than the store bought cross country morning fuel. I found a new fall favorite from the market- pumpkin branches! They also are referred to as pumpkin on a stick. It was just what I needed to pull out the fall decorations for our house on Newark-Granville Road!

Since Fall arrives soon September 22- our dinner time discussion debated- is it the last day of summer or the first day of fall? Since I love summer I'll say the last day of summer. But I'm ready for fall- more so than ever!! So why am I in an autumn mood these days? Devine Farms opened today and we look forward to a visit there. I'll be on the farm this week- facilitating Soy Science-a nice change of pace for me and a way to return the favor of support to the education team!! HATSOFF was early this year so I'm in a good place to welcome fall.
I'm hosting our Columbus friends- our dinner club next week and have made the theme- you guessed it- autumn favorites. I'll roast pork with vegetables and look forward to my friends that cook well interpretations. We're thinking of Clare's birthday- next week- October is a good Fall month to me. Life on Newark-Granville Road is ready for the next season and the pleasures it bring! I'll post The Works' Glass Pumpkin Patch date soon- but know the Gear/Gift shop has some very pretty and unique ones waiting for you.
