Champaign, OH:  November Blue


November shadows, shade November change
November spells sweet memory, the season blue remains
November spells sweet memory, the season blue remains…
(November Blue-The Avett Brothers)

It’s now that cold, chill that the November winds kick in. It reminds us that we are now out of the warm limbo that is between the end of summer, and the dazzling of fall. We are headed to Thanksgiving, and then we are headed to the months that I like to call both hibernation, and yet planning mode.

We usher in the hush of the growing season, while we begin, at least with Hippie and the Farmer, the indoor growth time. The seed saving, grown lighting, garden planning stages…

November is the cusp of both the goodbye, and the hello…

We open the market, this week, to say hello to returning vendors, and also to remind you that we will have next week, as a market, and then we will be closed for the Thanksgiving week!!

Get your orders in, see all that we offer, and let us guide you through these months of winter…we can make it all an experience in local…

XOXO,
Cosmic Pam

Have you tried Ancient Awakenings Kefir?
I just recently found their Coconut Lime Kefir,
it’s got a yummy blend of vanilla and lime that tastes
similar to key lime pie. Sooo good!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We just received a new box of Good Shepherd Herbals
Elderberry Syrup, it’s great for colds or flu and
just helps your immune system in general so it’s good to keep
around when you start to feel under the weather.
It’s a dark, sweet syrup that the entire family will enjoy.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

It’s that time of year when we begin to see holiday
decorations going up. This picture doesn’t do Paula’s wreath’s justice.
These are absolutely beautiful and will last on thru New Years!
Oh and wait till you smell the fresh pine aroma these wreaths have.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Eggs
I’m sorry but we are currently very short on our egg supply.
I have approved a new farmer that plans to sell in a few weeks
and one that will be coming in a few months. Thank you for your patience.
