Mmmm beans and tomatoes and all sorts of good stuff from their yard. It’s bittersweet when fall comes and we have to start to say goodbye to summer, but hello to all this yummy stuff from their garden!

Are you going to take in the scents and tastes of fall this weekend? More cider and donuts and smelling fruit that has started to hit the ground for us… have a great weekend.

I’m pretty disappointed that we couldn’t return to the Hamptons Barn (where my husband and I were married, and where we have frolicked with family and friends in past summers). We had a summer full of work, and Jewish holidays came earlier this year.. making it near impossible to get out there for tomato season (and ya know how I love my tomatoes!) We did however try like h*ll to get out there for some pumpkin picking – although this year was not as warm as Octobers of the past so we really felt like we were harvesting crops before the winter cold comes! Hank’s warm Pumpkin Spice Donuts really hit the spot when it’s cold outside.

Have a lovely weekend!

After our weekend at Audrey and Etta’s grandparent’s house, we hit the Bethel Woods Harvest Festival on the way back to the city. It feels a little early to be collecting pumpkins but the kids loved running through a corn maze (and straw maze for the littlest ones). It seemed fitting that we made peace sign jewelry since we were so close to Woodstock – and the tomatoes and kettle corn were YUM.

What a great use of unused space, right? Take all the rooftops of the city, and imagine how much you could grow! We visited Brooklyn Grange‘s Queens location – the flagship farm on Northern Blvd – which is just a short distance from our home.

The kids loved searching for mint and other herbs (a challenge the farm stand attendant put them to as soon as they got to the roof). We happened to be there when a little ‘end of the farm apprentice season’ celebration was going on .. and watched chefs put together lunch in a ‘paleo-diet theme’, and Ezra loved studying how a DJ scratches a record.

Our barn had a big backyard to frolic in, with benches made of logs and ride-on toys strewn about. The kids loved playing with little animals on the windowsill, and I loved the overgrown ivy on the shuttered window in our loft bedroom. The nights were punctuated with s’more-making sessions and sweet sleepovers under mosquito nets. We will miss summer and the lobster, corn and tomatoes.
