Coming Full Circle

There was one summer evening at Purlescence probably two years ago where Sandi and Kaye had a big bowl of huge strawberries set out for the nibbling. They belonged to an organic farmshare and it was the peak of the season.

Those strawberries tasted like the ones my family drove an hour to a pick-your-own place near Camp David to get when I was growing up–and nothing like the grocery store’s. Wow. I went home and looked their supplier up and the demand was greater than the supply; new customers were not being accepted.

Saw something today and finally went looking again.

I’d wanted for a long time to know what a heritage-variety Spitzenberg apple tastes like; I’m not going to plant a tree that’s a question mark.

Our first Full Circle box comes next week. Spitzenbergs will be in it. I can’t wait.

p.s. Hat, finished, scarf, finished, baby dress, finished, baby blanket, finished. Happy Aftober!

42 more hours. Not that I’m counting. The cats are exhausted at the whole thing and are conked out under the wing chair. I’m only up a very little bit on the Icon Dress. I need a dose of my own medicine.

Oooh… many finished objects and the prospect of tasting a heritage variety apple. Sounds wonderful.

I concurdle with RobinM! I’ve got a few tiny bits to finish (mostly sewing in) and some beautiful Bramleys waiting to be baked tomorrow.

the hat is wonderful!

I’ve never heard of that particular variety of apple — hope to see you blog about what it tastes like! Apples are one of my favorite things — and this time of year is the best because the ones we have access to are actually fresh – not storage ones!

Ditto what my sister said; do you suppose our fondness for apples is genetic? I could eat one (or more) every day, all year long. But I do balk at paying more than $3/pound for them.

I think you just gave me a great idea for a party – an apple tasting party, where everyone brings a couple of apples of one variety per person. And maybe everyone could bring a different kind of cheese, too!
