Yesterday we left the farm to meet up with friends. Vegetables were picked, egg gathered and packed, coolers filled, bed of the truck jammed full of deliveries.
Between drop offs and pickups we managed to get a few hours away, at a friends house on the water. Brackish water, not quite salt water but getting close. A beautiful tributary just off the Chesapeake Bay.
The garden club launched their season. It starts with some steamed crabs, pulled from these waters by a guy who then steams them to bright red, right around the corner from this spot.
It is a lovely way to welcome the change of season. And easy enough to get a full day of farm work in, get from the little mountains to not quite the ocean and catch up with a whole bunch of loved ones.
Life is good.
