"NOVEMBER COMES AND NOVEMBER GOES, WITH THE LAST RED BERRIES AND THE FIRST WHITE SNOW; WITH NIGHT COMING EARLY, AND DAWN COMING LATE, AND ICE IN THE BUCKET AND FROST BY THE GATE. THE FIRE BURN AND THE KETTLE SING, AND EARTH SINKS TO REST UNTIL NEXT SPRING." ~ELIZABETH COATSWORTH~
Today I received a surprise in the mail. Yes as you can see it is a bag of beans -Pinto beans that is. They have made the journey all the way from Colorado. Linda, proprietor of the blog "Life on a Colorado Farm" is a farmer's wife (and oh so much more) graciously offered to send me some. These beans are one of the main products from their farm. As we all know a farmer works from sun up till sun down and that also includes the farmer's wife! Thank you so much Linda it was so nice to receive a package on this dark and dreary day here in Maine. Now it's time to dust the bean pot off!
