Sweet Face At The Farm

I just couldn't help but want to take this little princesses picture - so I asked the mom for permission and to share it with our farm news readers.

She liked her apple!

Simple Fall Decorations

Melissa's a friend I've never met personally, but love her just the same. While this mornings market farm muffins are continuing to bake, I took a peek at what she'd got going on her blog {love it} called The Inspired Room. She's the incredibly simple, lovely designer who helped me {via bloggy land} re-work a room in our previous home. Amazing.

Anyway, I decided she might not care if I stole - borrowed this picture from her blog. We all need a little fall decorating inspiration and Melissa's simple Holiday ideas seemed to be just perfect to share.

Now, on to my other reason for sharing this with you. We WILL have our delivery of these specialty French pumpkins at our farm any moment. Thirty have already been spoken for - so I'd suggest you get ready, peruse Melissa's Holiday Decorating ideas and then plan to rush to The Simple Farm to get your first pick on our pumpkins!

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

Wednesdays are always a high light of my week. Early in the morning, around 7 a.m. the cars start rolling in and the rock star women begin to gather finding gloves, shovels, seeds, buckets, stapler guns, wheel barrows, scissors, fertilizer and just about anything else that is needed to make the morning successful in the eyes of a farmer.

And yet, success is a group of women unknown to each other who show up because they dare to and because the care to - to lend a hand and help a little urban (some say suburban) farm (seeking to be self sustaining) in the middle of Scottsdale - grow and connect to its community through good, organic food.

Days like today cause me to stand back and look up and give thanks to some One higher than myself - mainly because I'm in awe of the Providential drawing of these women to this farm and to what they mean to me.  It's in this rare and sacred place that I am learning to love and care deeply for - women who I have invited into my life and they me into theirs and they into each others.  It's more than an inner delight to see them laughing and knowing and chatting and caring and crying and opening up their own souls to each other. . .

. . . much more.
