Be Not Afraid

Well everyone, it’s still harvest time and now we’re getting into the hardy winter warming vegetables. If you come to the Boonville Farmers Market Saturday mornings from 9:45 to noon at the Boonville Hotel Parking lot you can purchase some of those delectable vegetables, not to mention fall fruits and so much more. Cindy Wilder will bring her sweet, crispy Asian pears, Petit Teton is once again sharing their juju bees and seckle pears with us and if you’re unfamiliar with seckle pears you MUST try one. The sweet honey-like flavor is like no other pear. Of course, the apple press will be there for all of your leftover fruit after making pies and sauce and jam. Barbara Lewellen was there last week pressing her bounty to ferment into vinegar. (You go girl: resource, resource, resource.) If this is your first year in the Valley you should know it’s also time for Tom Brewer’s chestnuts. He brings buckets of them to the Market along with ones he’s roasted for you to taste. Mmmm!…
