Fall is here! There’s no doubt about that – the leaves are turning and falling, the air smells of wood smoke, and sweaters and jackets have been dug out of storage. The skies are brilliant, and only green tomatoes and brussel sprouts are thriving in the garden. (Well, we do have a couple of magnificent cabbages waiting to be harvested in our community garden.) Our bioenergy grass pellet stove has been cleaned and is providing warmth and comfort to visitors in the Arts and Crafts shop.
