******************************* 

  Valentino's is officially closed for the season. Our last delivery brings a tearful yet well deserved break from what will forever be known as the "season of learning".

Looking back over the last six months, we have come to realize that we were blessed with a great season--even though the gardens produced far less than we had hoped for.

Our family was able to spend real quality time together in the fields, in the forest, and in the quaint cabin we called home for the summer.

Carin, Mani, and I would like to thank everyone who made this season possible. To Ian, Suzanne, Max, and Anna of Mariposa Farm, all of you made our stay on the farm memorable and enjoyable. We will miss our "regional-seasonal cuisine nights", cooling off by the pool, squealing piglets, cackling geese, downy ducks, and the guinea fowl. And of course, we will miss Ian wearing his disco shirt while on his charging chariot, powered by Jacob...or slowly sauntering with Saffra in the lead.

To the volunteers and friends who came out to help or simply visit, we will miss you and your help in weeding the garden beds.

To our CSA members, thank you for sharing our produce with your families and for supporting local growers like us. We hope that you continue to do the same next season, and in the years to come.

To all the other local farmers out there, we wish you the best for the waining days of autumn--in wait for the chilling northern winds to put the gardens to sleep.

Cheers everyone.
